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:

Trade Centers of the Upper Midwest: Changes from 1960 to 1989.

Anding, Thomas L., John S. Adams, William Casey, Sandra de Montille, and Miriam Goldfein.

Significant changes occurred in the economy of the Upper Midwest in the thirty years from 1960 to 1989. This study presents a new profile of trade centers in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, the Dakotas, Nebraska, and Montana. Data about the trade centers in 1960 and 1989 are compared. A large number of tables, figures, and maps present the story of changes in the number of business establishments and the kind of businesses operating in the whole range of trade centers, from hamlets to metropolitan areas. The report examines wholesale trade, retail trade, agricultural services, construction, manufacturers, transportation and communications, banks, and services.
