Training news...

Busy at Ballarat
Ballarat was the place to be in February, when Helen Leary, the Victorian LEP Coordinator, visited ACU Aquinas campus to present AusStats and Census sessions. Staff from the University of Ballarat also attended. It was a great opportunity for staff to network with library colleagues, share training facilities and, from an ABS perspective, have a jointly organised event. Thanks go to Liz Hartmann, Marianne Gration and Alistair Scott.

Helen later revisited Ballarat, where staff from the Central Highlands branches provided positive feedback on tips they had received for navigating the ABS web site, searching and using CLIB. One noted that "the range of information available is beyond statistics", and another on the utility of the "tips on how to get the best out of CLIB using different geographic structures to customise areas". Thanks go to Jenny Schmidt and Jenny Fink.

Remote training at Mount Isa
Queensland LEP Coordinator, Tanya Lucas visited Mount Isa, also in February. Staff of the Mount Isa City Library were trained in the ABS web site, CLIB and other ABS Reference Products. Training covered the wealth of historical and local information available, including full-text articles available from 1908 onwards. Team Leader, Stephanie McDonald said, "it was very valuable, and we can now assist our community more efficiently in the provision of statistics. I am grateful to the ABS for providing training to staff in remote locations such as ours."

Learning @ Launceston
Staff and students at Launceston TAFE City Campus Library were visited by Mary Eagle, the Tasmanian LEP Coordinator, who conducted census and ABS web site training. Business and census statistics were emphasised, and the session was well received by all. It was particularly pleasing that everyone could access the ABS web site on their own machine. Many thanks to Cindy Bissett and her staff.
