Government Shutdown Research Work-around

If you rely on federal government data and information, you may find you cannot access some agencies' websites due to the partial federal government shutdown, which began on October 1, 2013.    In some instances you will find splash pages that indicate websites are temporarily unavailable or are not being updated. Here's a short list:  American Factfinder,, Library of Congress, United States Census Bureau, United States Department of Education,, National Center for Education Statistics, United States Geological Survey (USGS), The National Map, The National Park Service, etc.

Recommended Strategy:  Begin research @ The Gardner-Harvey Library Website to find online full-text articles and eBooks as well as digital media.  Begin online research at Articles & More which searches all these source types via the EBSCO discovery service called OneSearch.  Or search a specific subject database, listed in Databases A-Z.
