Need help with finding statistics?

Seeing Through Statistics by Jessica M. Utts

Main 2nd Floor – QA276.12 .U88 2015

‘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.

Bloomberg Terminals

Presentation1Did you know students now have access to Bloomberg Terminals in the library?  Users can monitor and analyze real-time financial market data while also placing trades.   Check out this financial software in the library computer lab (the lab on the right as you walk in).

Ask a librarian if you need any help. There are user manuals beside the terminals with log-in info.

PrivCo Database now requires separate login

Some important news for business majors or anyone doing marketing or financial research:

PrivCo, a database for business and financial research, now requires users to establish a separate account for access. Some databases choose to do this to handle the large amounts of data that users download.

Once an account is set up, logging in is quick and easy. When clicking on the PrivCo database, it will prompt you to create a new account, with an authorization code provided for you. Please use your University of Tampa email to sign up.

Please email library [at] ut.edu if you have any questions or access issues.
