Senate Report on Libraries

Like all in the library and information community the ABS Library Extension Program was very interested in the Report of the Senate Inquiry into Libraries in the Online Environment released in October 2003.

We were delighted to be singled out for special commendation in the Report and thank all those libraries who mentioned the ABS and LEP in their Submissions. To quote from the Report: "While many departments have quite comprehensive web sites, providing links to large numbers of their publications, other government agencies are limited in what they provide online. Nor does there appear to be any uniformity in what is made available or for how long. One notable and commendable exception is the Australian Bureau of Statistics, whose library extension program was warmly regarded by all."
