Rod Library has added a many-featured scanner that can be used at no charge. It is located on the bottom floor, near the Multiservice Center. Scanned images can be saved to a flash drive or emailed to your account. A research paper, for example, can be scanned in a text format and opened in Microsoft Word.
The World Bank announced on April 20 that "it will offer free access to more than 2,000 financial, business, health, economic and human development statistics that had mostly been available only to paying subscribers." Some 330 indicators are available for up to 209 countries. Some of the data go back 50 years.
The statistics are available through a new web site. The World Bank has prepared this guide for working with the data. The statistics can be searched or browsed through categories such as Countries, Topics, Indicators, and the Data Catalog. Results can be downloaded in formats such as Excel.
If you need to request the use of a wheelchair while in the library, there is a wheelchair located at the Circulation Desk, to the left of the main entrance. The Access Services staff on duty will make arrangements for use and provide assistance as needed.
Calling all students, staff, faculty and community members!
