Tanya's off to a driving start
The new LEP Coordinator for Queensland, Tanya Lucas, is off to a driving start. Her trip to Cunnamulla, in South West Queensland in October saw Tanya clock up almost 2,000km. She visited the libraries in Chinchilla, Roma, Charleville and Cunnamulla, training librarians on eLEP and CLIB 2001 and the ABS web site. More on her eventful trip in the next edition of this Newsletter.

Tanya has been working in the ABS for three years, most recently as the Census Liaison Officer for the state. A country girl from Central Queensland, Tanya is looking forward to being able to support and assist libraries throughout Queensland.
More recently, Tanya visited the Southport Library on the Gold Coast. The Gold Coast City Library Service has four LEP branches that have subscribed to the eLEP service. The eLEP training for 21 library staff was received enthusiastically. The Digital Resources Librarian Jenni James commented: "Thanks for the great training on Wednesday. I'm still receiving complimentary feedback from library staff, who are enthusiastic about the enormous amount of information they can now more easily provide to library customers. The additional training booklets supplied will enable staff who were unable to attend, to do self-paced training at their branches. The ABS site is a treasure trove for those ticklish statistical reference questions."
