The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Educational Needs of Dislocated Workers in Minnesota.

Park, Rosemarie J., Rebecca L. Storlie and Ren, V. Dawis.

Economic changes in the 1980s in the United States caused job losses in a number of major industries. Dislocated workers from four Minnesota industries--manufacturing, mining, lumber, and agriculture--were interviewed about their job goals, plans for retraining, and needs for improved basic skills in reading and mathematics. This report includes policy recommendations as to what unions, companies, government, and educational institutions can do to aid dislocated workers. A summary of the study appeared in the June 1988 CURA Reporter.
