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:

This 1980 atlas brings together in a single source a vast amount of information on Minnesota's basic resources and current trends and development. Examples of topics included are bedrock geology, farm-size changes, export manufactures, weekly newspaper circulation, changes in housing construction, and local government taxes. Designed as an aid for local and state government officials and a data source for students learning about Minnesota's development, it is also a fascinating reference work for the general public seeking to learn more about the state.
