From the Editor
Since the release of CLIB 2001 on 15 October 2002, the LEP Coordinators have been just about permanently "working out of the office" and they wouldn't have it any other way! Libraries have been enthusiastic about the ABS training visits from their Coordinator and in this issue we have some great stories from LEP libraries around the country!
Mt Isa Libraries have given us a great profile of their library service and, like the librarians in Cairns, Broome and librarians all over Victoria, they have discovered how much wonderful information is available in CLIB 2001 and on the ABS Website.
LEP training will really help you help your clients to make the make best use of ABS information. Our CLIB 2001 and Website training has been very popular. Over 2000 librarians have been trained since last July! Some folk feel that the ABS is "just about numbers" - we offer so much more - though I have to say that we do offer a lot of very interesting and useful numbers!
The next few months are to be important for the LEP - we are planning the Second Release of CLIB 2001 and look forward to releases of the latest census publications. LEP libraries will automatically receive all of these in the coming months.
