Minnesota libraries have a wide variety of data needs, many of which they resolve on their own. But on occasion we've all grappled with the hope that the data we seek is already at someone else's fingertips.
The Saint Paul Public Library recently encountered just such a situation, and we were able to help. Specifically, they asked if we had a list of Minnesota cities paired with their corresponding zip codes, counties, and public library systems. We did indeed have all the information, but it was contained in separate lists, so we set to work combining spreadsheets and looking up data where we identified gaps. The resulting spreadsheet is now located on the MNLINK website.
