Library Extension Program and Information Skills Program
The Library Extension Program (LEP) and Information Skills Program (ISP) have been discontinued due to recent changes to both the delivery of training and the focus for information services.
The Information Skills Program (ISP)
After 31 August 2009, the current national program of free training and information sessions delivered via the Information Skills Program (ISP) will cease to operate.
This program will be replaced with a new suite of training courses which will be offered on a cost-recovery basis through the Statistical Literacy Unit. The provision of free online learning tutorials and other resources will also be made available via the ABS website.
The Library Extension Program (LEP)
Since 1991, the ABS Library Extension Program (LEP), has provided ABS print publications, on a complimentary basis, to a network of public, state, university and TAFE libraries across Australia, as well as providing training and other educational and promotional services to participating libraries.
The introduction of free statistics on the web has meant that the ABS is no longer producing most flagship publications in print format, and as a result the LEP program has been discontinued.
