Welcome to the final issue of ABS News for Libraries for 2007. We have enjoyed a busy year of getting out and about and spreading the word about Census data. The community response has been overwhelmingly positive, and we look forward to seeing how librarians and information professionals in all sectors assist their client to access and use ABS data.

To help our readers with their statistical queries, this issue features a number of guides to finding ABS (and other) data on a range of topics. The 'Shortcut' this issue is on finding historical data, and the 'Census' article features cross-classified occupation data. Check out the 'Education Libraries' for a Health Hotspot feature on Obesity - one of the most popular search terms used on the ABS website.

The November issue also includes information on services such as Information Consultancy, navigating the licensing agreements around re-publishing ABS data on your own website, and a fun feature article called Summer Stats - get the facts behind some of Australia's favourite summer activities.

Wishing you all a restful and festive break, and looking forward to returning in the new year.
