‘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.

A brief video from Google explaining how the Google search engine works, and how to do better searches.
With the growth of services that offer online movies it’s becoming more difficult to know which one might offer a streaming version of a movie. With CanIStream.It you can search across services to see if the movie you want is available.
Can I Stream It?
Let’s say you are a regular techie with a Netflix account, a Hulu account, and since you only shop online, you also have an Amazon Prime account. Now let’s say you want to know if a movie you’re dying to watch is available to be streamed instantly, using any of these accounts.
With CanIStream.It, you can search across all of these services and pick the one you want to use. And if the movie you’re looking for is not available, just sign-up, set a reminder and voila we will shoot you an email when your chosen service makes the movie available. It’s simple and fast.
CanIStream.it also searches iTunes, Crackle, Blockbuster, Youtube Movies, EPIX, Vudu, Android, and Amazon OnDemand stores; so if a movie isn’t available you might still be able to digitally rent or purchase it.
Just type in the movie title you want to search for and then select “Streaming”, “Rental”, “Purchase”, or “DVD/Blu-ray” from the menu to check for availability. If the movie is available, simply click on the icon and it will take you to the movie page, for the service you selected. If not, then sign-in and set a reminder and we’ll let you know when it becomes available.
CanIStream.It is a free service created by the UrbanPixels crew for the community. We were missing a service like this, so we built it and now hope that other people find it useful too.
