Help! I’m an Accidental Government Information Librarian presents... Census sources outside of American FactFinder

The Government Resources Section of the North Carolina Library Association welcomes you to a series of webinars designed to help us increase our familiarity with government information. All are welcome because government information wants to be free.
American FactFinder can be frustrating to use, but what other sources are available? This webinar will cover both free and commercial sources of census data such as NHGIS and Social Explorer.
Michele Hayslett is the Data Services Librarian at UNC at Chapel Hill, where she has worked for ten years. Prior to that she worked in similar capacities at the NCSU Libraries and the State Library of North Carolina. She has been learning about Census data since 2000 and continues to learn.
We will meet together online on Friday February 8th from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. (Eastern). Please RSVP for the session using this link:
We will use WebEx for the live session. Information on testing and accessing the session will be made available when you register.
