Training Presentations
Census has a 2 minute video<https://youtu.be/tunMBo2GifQ> that provides a good basic overview of the 2020 Census and suitable to give staff as an introduction to the Census. A more detailed presentation focused on key facts for library staff is also available from ALA. Both the PowerPoint file<http://www.ala.org/advocacy/sites/ala.org.advocacy/files/content/govinfo/ALA2020CensusPresentationSlides.pptx> and Presenter Notes<http://www.ala.org/advocacy/sites/ala.org.advocacy/files/content/govinfo/ALA2020CensusPresenterNotes.pdf> are available.
