NCompass Live: Learning to Live Without a Statistical Abstract - Recorded Online Session 


In March 2011, the division of the U.S. Census Bureau responsible for data compilations such as the Statistical Abstract of the United States revealed that it would discontinue several popular publications. The decision was largely driven by budgetary concerns, but it also reflected further evolution toward new vectors for distributing data electronically. James Shaw, Director of Collections, Criss Library - UNO, will provide an update of the situation and offer practical advice concerning alternative resources. He will also explore the policy implications of trading away convenience and ease-of-use for enhanced data tools more suitable for advanced researchers than the general public.
