Census makes sense online - CLIB @your Library
Release 2 of the special Census product for libraries - CLIB 2001 - was made in April. Feedback from libraries was very important in enabling the ABS Census team to make Release 2 even more user friendly than Release 1. Navigation has been streamlined and extra help pages added.
CLIB 2001 is the first ABS product offered in a range of installation options. Libraries may use CLIB on the web, or they may install it in its entirety to the hard drive of their PCs, or they can run CLIB "straight from the ROM". Libraries may also use more than one installation method if they wish.
Thank you to those libraries who responded to the recent emailed CLIB Survey. The Survey has found that libraries often use more than one installation method. Many libraries have installed CLIB in its entirety to the hard drive of their PCs. Quite a few are using the web version with the ROM version as a back up. Running CLIB "straight from the ROM" is also very popular as libraries do not need to have a large amount of hard disk space available for the product. If you would like to discuss any of the technical aspects of CLIB with the experts, please call the Census Technical Help Line on 1800 676 646.
CLIB Licence Conditions?
Some libraries have asked about the Licence Conditions for CLIB. The Licence is on the main entry page of CLIB also on the CLIB page of the ABS web site.
