Arizona State and Local Government Documents Collection


The State And Local Arizona Documents (SALAD) collection contains documents published by the State of Arizona, its Counties, incorporated Cities or Towns, or affiliated Councils of Government; documents produced under the auspices of a state or local agency, board, commission or department, including reports made to these units; and Salt River Project, a licensed municipality. ASU is a primary collector of state publications and makes a concerted effort to acquire and catalog most materials published by state and local governmental agencies.

The ASU Digital Repository provides access to digital SALAD publications, however the ASU Libraries’ non-digitized Arizona documents can be searched through the ASU Libraries Catalog. For additional assistance, Ask A Government Documents Librarian.

Publications issued by the Morrison Institute for Public Programs at Arizona State University are available in the ASU Digital Repository Morrison Institute for Public Policy - Publications Archive collection.

For kids 5 and younger in early learning programs, success is largely determined by the knowledge and skills of their teachers, and by the quality of the interactions with those educators. This publication describes how Arizona continues to struggle in educational attainment, wages and retention of its early learning workforce. It also offers recommendations for parents, providers, policymakers and other stakeholders on how we can all better support those responsible for helping infants, toddlers and preschoolers get ready for school and set for life!

The prevalence of obesity among 2- to 5-year-olds has more than tripled since the 1970s, and multiple studies are showing increased levels of high blood pressure and diabetes in grade schoolers. Poor nutrition has also been linked to developmental delays and dental problems in young kids. This policy brief outlines the problem of early childhood obesity, defines First Things First’s role in supporting healthy weight in young kids, and identifies possible solutions for families, early childhood educators and communities.
