Where to find government data during most Federal Gov. websites' shutdown

When there was a lapse in government funding, several government data websites (for instance Census.gov) would be unavailable until further notice. This might cause inconvenience for your research.

I would like to make a note that we have ProQuest Statistical Abstract of the United States  or ProQuest Statistical Insight for most government data in e-version. We also have old census data in print on 3/F (call number - HD7293 .A6113).

Another tip that I would like to share with you: If you need information normally housed on one of the affected sites, don't forget about The Wayback Machine (http://archive.org/web/web.php).

For instance: USDA.gov works pretty well: http://web.archive.org/web/20130922084658/http://www.usda.gov/wps/portal/usda/usdahome
