LexisNexis Academic Adds New Market and Industry Reports

The LexisNexis Academic database periodically adds and deletes titles. Over the last few months, for example, they added 143 titles and dropped 19. One of the new titles is Progressive Media's Market Industry Research. This is a collection of industry snapshots, covering markets and categories in 74 countries; one report example is Drinks Retailing in United States: Market Snapshot to 2016.

The "Good" Wikipedia

Did you know.....

that the Gale Virtual Reference Library provides credible topic overviews from sources such as specialized subject encyclopedias?  You can find it by going to "Databases A-Z" on our library homepage.  You may hear some of us library guys refer to it as the "Good" Wikipedia you can use!!!

Too warm AND stuffy!!

 Feeling a bit warm on the east side (the side toward Maucker Union) of the library?  A bit stuffy, too?  Our fans on that side of the building need to get repaired.  A major part of the motor was sent to Cedar Rapids for repair; if they can't fix it, we'll have to order a new one.  We can't predict when it will get fixed unfortunately.

So please bear with us!  If necessary, move to the back of the building toward the Campanile where we still have fans working.
