Facebook decided to do site maintenance today and the Rod Library page (with trivia question #3) would show up, then disappear, show up, then disappear. Frustrating!!!
Because of the problems with the site on Wednesday, we will run question 3 again on Thursday so you all have a chance to enter. We'll put question 4 on Friday and question 5 on Monday, April 16.
We'll announce the winner on Friday, April 20!!!!!
National Library Week is April 8-14. To help celebrate, enter Rod Library's trivia contest on its Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/rodlibrary
We'll post a question every day of National Library Week. The person who correctly answers the most questions will win a Nook! In the case of a tie, we will randomly select a winner.
(Unfortunately, Rod Library employees, including Library student assistants, cannot enter.)

EBSCO has resolved the problem we experienced yesterday with their databases. The EBSCO databases are available again!
The LexisNexis Academic database was recently expanded to include Industry Dossier and Executive Dossier information. Tabs for Industry and Executive can be found within the Company Dossier section after clicking the Companies tab on the left side of the inital screen.
The Industry Dossier can be searched by SIC code or industry-related term to get information such as financials and ratios on leading firms in an industry, from providers such as Integra and Morningstar.
