Welcome to the first issue of ABS News for Libraries for 2008! There is so much new information available from the ABS at the moment that is relevant to all sectors of the profession. In an effort to include all of this information we have temporarily replaced the sections reporting on education, public and specialist libraries with a feature on 'New Releases'.

So what can you look forward to in this issue?
