A century of service to the Australian community
2005 is an important year for the ABS. It marks 100 years of service by the national statistical agency to Australian governments and the Australian community.
And libraries are part of the story. Libraries provide their communities with access to statistics produced by our national statistical agency. In addition, many LEP libraries have a special expertise in the help they can give their clients using ABS statistics. This expertise is supported by the training and advice offered by the LEP.
Libraries around Australia are promoting ABS statistics to their communities in 2005 with an ABS Centenary Display. Contact your LEP Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org for promotional materials and ideas for how your library can be involved.
