Database contains info on schools, libraries

  • Published Monday, August 26, 2013, at 12 a.m.

Each Monday, The Eagle highlights a government record that is available to the public. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives.

For a complete list of You Oughta Know columns, go to www.kansas.com/oughta.

The record: A searchable database of public and private schools, colleges and public libraries across the country.

Why you’d want it: To learn more about educational opportunities near you. You can search by ZIP code, city or state. You also may search by the name of the school, college or library.

Where you get it: The National Center for Education Statistics, which is under the U.S. Department of Education, keeps the database. The database is at http://nces.ed.gov/globallocator.

How much does it cost: The information is free.
