Valuing libraries: the ABS sponsors LIW

The Australian Bureau of Statistics is proud to be a major sponsor of the 2006 Library and Information Week (LIW). In sponsoring LIW, the ABS is again expressing its appreciation for the very important contribution libraries make in educating and informing Australians. We first recognised the value of libraries when we established the Library Extension Program (LEP).

As the spotlight turns on libraries during LIW, this is a great opportunity to showcase ABS information in your libraries.

The LEP Excellence Award provides a platform for the ABS to recognise the great work being done by LEP libraries to raise their clients' awareness of ABS information. It's also a national platform for libraries to showcase their information sharing skills. Why not consider using your LIW ABS activities to enter for this year's Award? The prize: a trophy and $1500 worth of ABS products and services. Entries close on 31 July.
