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:

Project Update: Bringing INFO-U to New Audiences.

Newman, Debby, and Frederick W. Smith

This project update reports on a CURA-supported project with INFO-U, a free, 24-hour phone and Internet information service maintained by the University of Minnesota Extension Service that offers practical information to the public on a wide variety of subjects, from food safety and nutrition to environmental issues. Building on a previous effort to launch a Spanish-language version of INFO-U in 2000, INFO-U staff applied for assistance from CURA's Community Assistant Program to hire Somali and Hmong students to initiate similar efforts in their respective communities. The update describes the project, as well as future plans to expand INFO-U resources to other language communities.
