Thank you very much for this information. I am concerned about copy- right violations, however. Could you provide some guidance on the legal aspects of copying data? I know I have copied a lot of data from articles and books and I use it in class -- but if we are thinking of storing this electronically, I think we should check the legal implications. As an author yourself, what are your thoughts? Perhaps your publisher could provide some guidance?
I agree that very rich sources exist -- from the sounds of things, easy access to an archive would be helpful to all us stat teachers. Perhaps the ASA could get involved?
