INFORMATION CONSULTANCY SERVICE
To satisfy your information needs, the ABS provides an information consultancy service on a fee-for-service basis, ranging from a simple information inquiry to specialised in-depth data investigations. Information may be provided in the format of your choice, and may include a hard copy report, (which can be mailed or faxed), computer diskette or compact disk.
ABS publications can contain only a fraction of the available data.

If you want access to ABS publications on a regular basis, the ABS subscription service is the solution. With a subscription, you receive your choice of publications directly through the mail.
To subscribe to ABS publications, you order in advance on an annual basis. You can amend your subscription at any time and include new products as they become available. You may also subscribe to on-line services or a range of special non-publication data services.

Basic ABS statistics are also available to the public via the Internet. The ABS StatSite contains ABS data across a range of subjects, including key economic indicators and also includes a full address list of Library Extension Program (LEP) libraries across Australia.
The ABS StatSite address is: www.abs.gov.au.
University students - providing that your university is a subscriber, you can obtain a more extensive range of ABS data via the Internet - the ABS Time Series Service. Your university librarian should be contacted for assistance.

LIBRARY ACCESS TO ABS INFORMATION
If you wish to access ABS statistical information, you can do so at any ABS office library. ABS office libraries are available for public reference, generally by appointment only (please contact your local ABS office for further information). These operate on a 'self-help' basis. However ABS librarians are able to facilitate fee-based information consultancies for clients.
ABS statistical information is also available to the community through the libraries participation in the LEP via public, State, TAFE and university libraries. Staff in these libraries have received training in the use of ABS information and are able to meet many information needs of the general community. Many school libraries also hold ABS publications.

STATISTICAL CONSULTANCY SERVICE
The ABS also offers a specialised statistical consultancy service to clients.
