Australian Library and Information Association Biennial Conference

The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) 2006 Biennial Conference - click06: 'Create, Lead, Innovate, Connect, Knowledge' was held at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre from 19-22 September and attracted 750 delegates from across Australia and internationally.

The ABS was a very visible sponsor of, and exhibitor at, the conference. Hundreds of information professionals visited the ABS exhibition stand and spoke with the Information Skills Program (ISP) consultants and other ABS staff about ABS data, in particular Census data and the upcoming 2006 output. It was great to meet so many of our clients at the conference.

Most delegates were overwhelmingly positive about the ABS as an organisation and its data dissemination. Not surprisingly, everyone was extremely pleased about the free availability of the extended range of data via the ABS Web site.
