QUT's User Guides to ABS data - helping clients help themselves

ABS products such as CLIB, CDATA and AusStats are used extensively by Queensland University of Technology (QUT) students and research staff. Users of ABS information receive support from QUT Library staff on the Information Desk and through the Faculty Liaison Librarians.

To help their clients make the best use of ABS information the library staff have prepared a series of User Guides. Queensland LEP Coordinator Tanya Lucas provided information to help QUT update the Guides which explain the role of CLIB, CDATA and AusStats and provide guidelines on how to access and use them.

QUT Library plans to make the User Guides available via QUT Library home page: http://www.library.qut.edu.au in the near future. Any member of the public can use them and perhaps your library can hotlink to them or adapt them to your needs.

Tanya visited QUT Carseldine Library in April to provide hands-on training in ABS products for the Information Desk staff. She also trained staff and research students in two of the Research Centres based at Carseldine Campus, CARRS-Q (Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety – Queensland) and the Centre for Social Change Research. Following the training, QUT invited Tanya to address librarians from the Brisbane Northern Corridor Education Precinct Library Network.
