How the Government shutdown will affect your research

We are currently working to pull together a comprehensive list of UT Libraries resources that will be affected by the government shutdown.

If the information below does not cover an issue of particular concern to you, feel free to contact us for more personalized assistance. You can find us through any of the avenues outlined at this link.

So far, we can tell you that ERIC reports are not available online.  As a workaround, you can still request ERIC microfiche from Library Express. You will need to specify the title and the DE number of the report.

The U.S. Census site also is down.  You can still use ProQuest Statistical Abstract of the United States from our databases page to access much of that data.  We also have old census data in print on the third floor (Call number: HD7293 .A6113).

Another good database of statistical data from the government is Statistical Insight.

If you need information normally housed on an affected web site, don’t forget about The Wayback Machine.

For example, their archive of the USDA site works fairly well.

Here is a more comprehensive list of affected web sites.
