What's New in Business
Here are a few new items that may interest you with respect to our business information resources.
- This last year, the Library was able to negotiate with SIU-Carbondale a joint license agreement to Standard & Poor's NetAdvantage database. This joint agreement saved both institutions some money and also allowed us to add some new modules from the NetAdvantage suite, such as the "Global Industry Surveys," the "Mutual Fund" module, and the "Daily Price Record" providing securities pricing data back to 1984.
- You might have seen recently that the World Bank is now making much of its data available for free. This includes their "World Development Indicators.
- Within our Euromonitor Passport GMID market research database, we have a new feature called "Dashboards," which essentially allows a visualization and mapping of the underlying demographic, market and industry data.
