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:

An Evaluation of the Minneapolis Neighborhood Information System.

Goetz, Edward G. and Brian Schaffer

This is the third article in a three-part series on the Minneapolis Neighborhood Information System (MNIS), a community-focused capacity-building project housed at CURA that assists neighborhood organizations in acquiring data, geographic information systems (GIS) analysis, and mapping capability to meet their revitalization goals. This article provides a summary of an independent evaluation of the MNIS program that was conducted to fulfill one of the requirements of the Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Administration Technology Opportunity Program (TOP) grant, which provided funding for the MNIS program. The authors analyze program outcomes of MNIS, including changes in practice, neighborhood conditions, and public policy; evaluate neighborhood organization involvement in MNIS; and provide recommendations regarding the future of MNIS.
