2006 Year Book Australia out now!

Year Book Australia 2006 was released on 20 January and all LEP libraries were sent a print copy. The first Official Year Book was published in 1908 and nearly a century later Year Book Australia is still the principal reference work produced by the ABS.

Libraries know the Year Book as a wonderful reference resource for everyone from primary school students to academic researchers - indeed for anyone interested in information about Australia. Its coverage includes Australia’s geography and climate, government, international relations, defence, education, and health and welfare.

This year's issue features a special article on deserts and desertification covering desert climates, archaeology, environmental history and flora and fauna.

Don't forget to look for the complimentary Year Book CD ROM inside the back cover.

The January 2006 issue of the Local Government and ABS Newsletter includes:

  • 2006 Census topics
  • Information Technology on Australian farms
  • What's happening in Local Government Finance
