Learn How To Best Use
An Exciting New Libraries' Resource:
The Libraries recently acquired Statistical Universe, an online research
tool from the Congressional Information Service that unifies indexing
previously available through the American Statistics Index, the
Statistical Reference Index, and the Index to International Statistics.
Statistical Universe offers indexing and abstracts of U.S. government
statistical publications from 1973 forward. It provides detailed
abstracts, indexing, and locator information for all statistical reports
of general research value issued by the federal government with some
reports as far back as the early 1960's. In addition, Statistical
Universe provides indexing for approximately 2000 documents from
international governmental organizations, e.g. the United Nations, the
International Monetary Fund, etc. since 1983.
Beth P. Bigman Esq. and Judy Matz MLS, professional trainers from the
Congressional Information Service, will lead workshops for faculty and
students on how to use this resource most effectively. These workshops
will be held:
Wednesday March 22, 2000 - 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m
