O Brave New World, That Had Such Resources in It!

The new, Millennial, edition of Historical Statistics of the United States from Cambridge University Press is now available on-line! UCB has subscribed, and presumably anyone with a .berkeley.edu address can access it at http://hsus.cambridge.org/HSUSWeb/index.do There are five volumes, 29 pounds (in hard copy) worth of data.
One of the beauties of the Millennial Edition of HSUS is that in the on-line version, one can download data series as Excel files. What CUP has currently on-line is the Beta version--somewhat clunky and can take a rather long time to load (it is, after all, a very large resource)--but a wonderful tool for teaching and research.
