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.

Arizona’s Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) is the statewide, standards-based assessment. AIMS measures the performance of students, schools, and districts on academic standards in reading, writing, and mathematics and is administered to students in grades 3, 5, 8, and high school.

These components are the organizational foundation for successful student achievement of the skills and knowledge of the Standards.

The purpose of the Asthma Guidelines for Schools is to provide information that will ensure that school administrators, school health personnel, teachers and support staff understand how to monitor asthma control in the school setting. This can be accomplished if every student with asthma has a care plan and an emergency plan on file and it is updated annually. Additionally, we hope that these guidelines will help to identify students with poorly controlled asthma, so that parents can be encouraged to follow-up with the student’s primary care physician or other health care provider.
