Hello, I'm the librarian who created this guide. Please contact me with questions or to schedule a research consultation.

Welcome, first year students. 


This course guide contains a small group of recommended resources for finding information and data on unhoused and food insecure people in Rhode Island. To select data resources, the librarian applied the following criteria:

  1. The data must be relevant and local.
  2. The data must be as current as possible.
  3. The data must be collected by a credible agency.
  4. If available, the methodology for collecting the data must be evaluated.
