At the outset of the Data Liberation Initiative (DLI), there were only 9 Data Centres in Canada with experienced staff.   A Training Module was developed in 1997 but it is now outdated. Today, there are over 70 Data Centres in Canada. The staff who manage them have varying job descriptions but the new generation, as well as those who have been there longer, need to be able to find information about DLI quickly for their clients, as well as for themselves. The DLI wants to inform its communities of the content of their holdings and then help them to access the data. And thus, the Compleat DLI Survival Kit was born.

This presentation will give the background of the Compleat DLI Survival Kit and look at each of the chapters in some detail. And we will show how this tool will prove beneficial to all Canadian Data Centres and to other users of Statistics Canada data.
