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:

Longfellow Dynamic Volunteer Map.

Minneapolis Neighborhood Information System.

Longfellow Community Council (LCC) had a list of volunteers who had signed up to distribute flyers in their neighborhood, which was expected to grow and change as more volunteers signed up and as some dropped off or move. LCC wanted to map their volunteers so that appropriate people could be identified to distribute flyers as neighborhood issues arose. An Access database was created to house LCC's volunteer data and to serve as a personal geodatabase for all of the data associated with the map. The parcels for Longfellow, Hiawatha, Cooper, and Howe were then added to the geodatabase. Finally, the volunteers' addresses were mapped, and the results of this geocoding process were also added to the geodatabase. The final map and geodatabase permanently link the database of addresses to the neighborhood map, which can be easily updated from within Access or ArcMap.
