Public Libraries –  The libraries in our region have subscriptions to data services that provide demographic and business data. The exact subscriptions vary by library, but each of these services can provide detailed high-quality data at no cost that isn’t generally available to the public.  Many of these resources are available over the internet to library card holders and do not require a trip to a library. Any Colorado resident can join a public library by applying for a card and going in person to verify their identity and to collect their library card. Some libraries offer online library card sign up with immediate temporary access to online resources.
