Like many University Libraries, the University of Maryland Libraries faces multiple challenges in the effort to build and maintain collections and provide access to the resources needed to support the institutional research and teaching mission. The collection budget at UMCP, like many other institutions, has failed to keep up with the rising costs of the information marketplace.

One result of these budgetary constraints is that the Libraries' subscription to Statistical Abstract of the United States (Proquest)  will not be renewed. Access to the database ended December 31, 2017.

Use the following UM databases as alternatives:
American Factfinder
Crime in the US
Data-Planet Statistical Datasets
Historical Statistics of the United States
Statistical Abstract of the United States (Census Bureau)

For additional sources see:
the Statistical Data Type in Database Finder
United States Census Bureau
