Editorial

This issue of LEP News focusses on the ABS web site - on free statistics on the ABS web site and on the redesign of that part of the web site previously known as 'AusStats'. These innovations mean that the community now has free access to many more statistics than previously and that those statistics are now arranged in a way that makes them easier to find and download. This will be welcome news for libraries - and indeed the feedback we are receiving about the web site is very encouraging.

In January that great ABS flagship title, Year Book Australia, was released. A print copy has been sent to every LEP member library. If you haven't yet, open your library's copy and become acquainted with this year's issue. The coverage is broad - everything from Australia's system of government to climate. Keep the latest Year Book near your Library's Information Desk. It truly deserves to be the reference librarian's best friend.

Lastly, 2006 is census year, with the next Census of Population and Housing coming up on 8 August 2006. Activity is gearing up in the ABS and LEP libraries will again have opportunities to highlight the census to their communities.
