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?
