CLIB2001 - Planning community access to Census data through libraries
What will be new in CLIB2001?
CLIB2001 will be similar to CLIB1996, but will be more intuitive and user friendly. It will include new features such as a drill down map interface, text search facilities and a better print function which will assist users in selecting and finding information more quickly. A full set of support documentation (2001 Census definitions and concepts)
will also be available within the product.
Full SLA maps on CD-ROM
The ABS will also provide all LEP libraries with a comprehensive set of SLA maps on a CD-ROM complete with the CD boundaries and codes. These maps will reduce the difficulties experienced with the hardcopy maps provided from the 1996 Census, which had been limited to areas surrounding the respective library and could be defaced, misplaced or stolen.
Data Release Schedule
The scheduled launch date for the first release of CLIB2001 is November 2002, with the second release to follow in April 2003. However, LEP member libraries, along with the general community, will be able to access first release data, including Basic Community Profile data down to SLA level, free of charge through the ABS web site from the national launch scheduled for July 2002.
More details on the range of products and services that will be available for the 2001 Census, and their scheduled release dates, are contained in Proposed Products and Services (Cat. No. 2011.0).
