By popular demand, METRO's GoDig (Government Documents Special Interest Group) is pleased to announce the Spring 2015 program:
Resources from New York City's Department of Planning
One of our toughest challenges as Librarians can be finding local information. One of the best primary sources is the NYC Department of City Planning website. Learn from the experts in this rare opportunity to meet with demographers from the NYC Department of City Planning. The program will emphasize the resources that their population division provides, punctuated with examples of how the data can be used to better understand our city, as well as data caveats.
9:00-9:15 Welcome and coffee
