‘Tis the season – it’s the end-of-the-semester-paper-crunch time! If you are writing a research paper and need statistics and data to support your argument, the library can help you.
Are you a business major or taking a sociology class that requires you to do quantitative analysis? Or maybe you just need one more excellent source to finish off your paper? Check out the Datasets and Statistics Research Guide, easily accessed from the library homepage.
Here you’ll find many free resources that cover governmental statistics and census info, scientific datasets, social surveys and indicators, financial information, and more. You will also see a list of books under each discipline that will guide you on how to use and analyze statistics effectively.
As always, if you have any questions about accessing and using data, stop by the Reference Desk and ask a librarian for help.

Peter Nuccio, Class of ’73
by Laney Knight, Digital Access Librarian
The Macdonald-Kelce Library had a wonderful visit from a University of Tampa alumnus during Homecoming 2018. Sporting his minaret pin with pride, Peter Nuccio ’73 came to the reference desk on Friday afternoon to inquire after a particular item in our collection: a Richard Strauss vinyl record entitled Strauss: Also Sprach Zarathustra, Op.30 conducted by Fritz Reiner and performed by the Chicago Symphony. Nuccio explained that during his time at UT, he would often borrow this record and listen to it while he did his homework here in the library. A quick search of our catalog and stacks proved that we did still indeed have the record in question!
Nuccio, who studied both education and philosophy, relayed to us his fondest memories of UT, describing his time here as some of the best years of his life. After graduation, he went on to be an educator and is now enjoying his retirement in Massachusetts. Despite living over 1000 miles away, Nuccio has never forgotten his alma mater and always makes a point to visit UT when he is in town. He also keeps the Spartan spirit alive by actively arranging UT alumni meetups and reunions in the northeast.
We were so glad to have met an alumnus with such fond memories of UT and our library that we gifted him the record from our collection. He now has another piece of take-home UT history he can enjoy year-round, though we hope he will come see us again the next time he is in town!
Interested in vinyl records? Search our collection on the first floor of the Macdonald-Kelce Library as well as in our online catalog.
