National distribution by LASA of lead publications produced by the NSW Government

A total of 5,019 lead publications published by the NSW Government was distributed by LASA this year. This compares very poorly to last year's total of NSW Government publications which was 20,769. Apart from the reduction of staff, the major reason for this is that 2 of the 3 "Lead Safe" booklets and 4 of the 5 "Lead Safe" factsheets are out of print and only 1 of the factsheets and part of 1 booklet is web-published. This year the ratio of NSW Government publications to all items distributed (47,452 items) is approximately one tenth. The second column in the table below gives the number of each item distributed. The first column is the Library Identification number of the item in our database.

Had the five Lead Safe factsheets and all three booklets remained in print, (instead of just the first two items on the list being in print) the numbers distributed would have assuredly been much higher. The NSW Health Minister apparently agreed in 2002 to the Lead Safe publications being revised and reprinted but this has not yet occurred. When it does and all of them are web-published, our job of informing the Australian public about lead will be that much easier.
