Launch of the LEP Excellence Award a great success!

The LEP Excellence Award was launched during Library and Information Week in May by the Australian Statistician, Dennis Trewin. Guests included a wide cross-section of the Canberra and region library community and senior ABS staff.

The LEP Excellence Award recognises and rewards LEP libraries for excellence in raising their communities' awareness, understanding and use of ABS information.

Entries for this year's Award closed on 31 July 2005. Start thinking about entering for next year's Award. This is a great opportunity to showcase the great work your library is doing for your community. We have received some exciting entries, evidence that LEP libraries have been actively promoting ABS information to their users. The winner will be announced in September, presented with $1500 worth of ABS products or services, a trophy and featured in the next LEP Newsletter.
