2. SERVICES
A. HISTORIC CENSUS INFORMATION
The Government Publications Office has been busy digitizing some of the more frequently used historic census information. Work has been completed on economic and housing figures for Maine from 1940 to 2000. Population totals for Maine communities have been updated to include the 2010 figures. Additional digitization work will continue throughout the spring semester. In addition to these electronic files, Fogler has a large selection of paper based historic census volumes available. The digitized files may be located at <http://library.umaine.edu/govdoc/newcensus.htm>.
