In preparation for Library and Information Week, staff were trained in eLEP and the ABS web site so that they were familiar with the service and how to access ABS information.
Kim Gadd, Reference Librarian said, "all the staff really enjoyed the training and it has greatly improved their ability to assist clients using ABS statistics".
During Library and Information Week, the Capalaba Branch Library promoted ABS online services including eLEP and CLIB by displaying eye-catching static displays at the library's entrance, so as to raise the awareness of this new service to their user community.
The trainees were surprised by the amount of easy to access free data available from the Latest Popular Statistics area on the Statistics web page. They also spent time looking at the Theme pages where links to both ABS and other sources of statistics may be found. Pam demonstrated the statistics area of the South Australian page and the new National Regional Profile. This was another hit with the group. They were excited to see the range of data in this new product!
The hands-on session with CLIB sparked a spirit of competition with a race to be the first to correctly complete the exercises.
All in all a great day was had by all. The participants were impressed with the resources available from the ABS and were very positive about the training. Pam and Megan got to see some spectacular scenery and enjoy the country hospitality of the Flinders region.
