Abstract
For the first time in the State of Idaho, ten libraries from around the State were invited to participate directly in the politically charged Census 2000 redistricting process. Through legislative funding, the State of Idaho provided libraries with computer equipment and GIS (Geographic Information Systems) software to enable citizens to create and submit congressional and legislative plans through their local libraries.
