LEP reaches regional and remote areas in NT

Training in regional and remote areas is all part of the service provided by the LEP Coordinators - especially in the Northern Territory.

LEP Coordinator Lee Magnusson recently visited Batchelor, 90km south of Darwin with a regional population of 1364. LEP training for librarians at the Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education Library covered many aspects of CLIB and the ABS web site.

The Batchelor Institute librarians commented that the training was "very timely, and we got a lot out of learning the ins and outs of searching for census data online."

Librarian Prue King said later: "Students and staff of Batchelor Institute, Batchelor School staff, and community members come to the library looking for statistics on health and other social topics. Because of our LEP training I now feel confident about being able to find that information quickly".

"The day after the training I was asked how many Uniting Church members there were in our local area. I was able to go directly to that information on CLIB 2001," Prue added.
