Delta Data Bank

One goal of DRCI is to create and maintain a socio-cultural, organizational, and institutional census of each county and of the Delta as a whole. the Institute is engaged in identifying the counties, cities, towns, settlements, and communities that comprise the Delta, and within these geographical units, the consequential political actors, leaders, organizations and institutions involved in the public policy discourse. Delta Data Bank reference materials are accessible to the general public via DRCI's online e-Forum. An extension of these online resources are found in DRCI Social Science Reading Room and Library and the DRCI Cyber Lab. Included also in the Reading Room is an expanding collection of newspapers, newsletters, books, and other periodical reference materials related to the Delta, and an electronic Blues Databank.
