“Along with their sponsorship of various artistic endeavors, the National
Endowment for the Arts (NEA) creates specialized analyses of topics of
interest to policy-makers, arts administrators, and others with an interest
in the arts. Their Research Notes papers can be found here, and visitors can
browse the papers by the date of their release or by subject. Currently,
there are almost 100 papers listed on the site. The first paper was released
in 1982, and since then, the NEA has sponsored papers that include “College
Course-Taking Patterns in the Arts”, “International Data on Government
Spending on the Arts”, and “Public Participation in the Arts: 1982 and
1992″. Finally, the site also contains links to the NEA’s research brochures
and a place where visitors can sign up to receive email updates about new
research publications. [KMG]” excerpt from Internet Scout Report 9/4/09
