Do you wish you were better equipped to connect your users with current 
and relevant statistics? Finding and using free data from the US 
Government is the topic of a set of workshops offered on November 21 at 
George Fox University's Portland Center. In the morning session Charles 
Rynerson will explain the effective use of American Community Survey 
(ACS) data from the Census Bureau. Charles is Coordinator of the Oregon 
State Data Center at PSU’s Center for Population Research. Following a 
no-host lunch, Valery King, from the OSU Libraries, will teach the 
afternoon session on locating health, education and crime data, with an 
emphasis on U.S. Government resources. The training will be hands-on, so 
attendees should bring wireless enabled laptop computers. The morning 
session begins at 9:30 in Room 255 of GFU's Portland Center (for 
directions see: http://www.georgefox.edu/maps_loca/portland.html), and 
the afternoon session will begin at 1:15 pm. Contact Tom Stave (UO) at 
(541) 346-3060 or Janis Tyhurst (GFU) (503) for more information. The 
workshops are sponsored by by DIGOR (the Documents Interest Group of 
Oregon) and George Fox University Library.
