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:

Realides Suburbanas: Latinos en el Condado de Dakota [Suburban Realities: Latinos in Dakota County].

HACER (Hispanic Advocacy and Community Empowerment Through Research)

A bilingual report that presents the experience of Latinos in Dakota County, just south of St. Paul's West Side neighborhood. HACER estimates that in 1999 more than 10,000 Latinos live in the county. The researchers examined demographic information, conducted face-to-face interviews with both Latinos and Anglos, and conducted focus groups with Latinos who work or live in the county. Photographs and quotes from the interviews help to convey why Latinos come to Dakota County, the strengths and the problems they have found there, and what is helping them in this suburban world.
