Down and loaded with ABS statistics
Welcome to the special edition of the LEP Newsletter for Library and Information Week 2004.
The theme for the 2004 Library and Information Week "Down and loaded: the right information @ the right time" focuses on the delivery of information via the online environment - it could have been written exactly with ABS information in mind.
The ABS provides a plethora of the latest information to educate and inform all Australians. Connection to the electronic eLEP service provides full-text downloads of more than 700 ABS titles - every publication issued since 1998. AusStats provides even more information. Don't forget CLIB, the census product developed specifically for libraries eligible through the LEP. Release 3 has just been sent out.
The next step is ensuring that the public know that this information is available, so we are always delighted to hear about LEP libraries promoting ABS information to their clients through their Open Days, special events and eLEP launches. Our Library and Information Week feature on "10 ways to use statistics in Library & Info Week" is packed with ideas about how libraries can stage events and information days.
To help libraries to promote ABS information in Library and Information Week, the LEP is putting together a kit of promotional materials. If you would like one to be sent to you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
