FDLP Basic Collection Updated to Include New Census Resource

  • Last Updated: December 31, 1969
  • Published: July 02, 2019

The FDLP Basic Collection was updated to include data.census.gov (entitled as “Explore Census Data”). American FactFinder was removed from the list. 

Since every library is required to have the titles in the FDLP Basic Collection accessible for immediate use, please review your access points for these two Census Bureau resources and update as needed.

More about data.census.gov:

“Starting in July, data.census.gov will be the primary way to access Census Bureau data, including upcoming releases from the 2018 American Community Survey, 2017 Economic Census, 2020 Census, and more.  After July 1, 2019, all new data (previously released on American FactFinder) will be released on this new data platform.”  (source: American Factfinder website, Census Bureau)
