LEP and university libraries - Supporting research
Do students know that they have a great range of ABS statistics @ their fingertips through their universities? ...That these can be used as evidence to back up arguments in their assignments? ...That ABS statistics are a valuable resource - both as a research tool, as well as an aid to sensible decision making in their personal and professional lives?
