NEW ELECTRONIC RESOURCES - Kevin, these could be grouped together under a like heading:

In-Depth Analyses of Current News and Events Now Just a Click Away

Congressional Quarterly, the respected provider of information on government, politics and public policy,
describes its weekly publication CQ Researcher as "the perfect answer for people who need a place to begin
research on current topics." Formerly
available to the IUSB community exclusively in the library's reference area, current and past issues of CQ
Researcher are now available on the web to campus network users. CQ Researcher "covers the most current
and controversial issues of the day with complete summaries, insight into all sides of the issues, bibliographies
and more. Users may browse through articles in the current issue or search for past articles using words, dates
or other criteria." Reports are compiled from a variety of reputable
sources, and provide detailed bibliographies and notes to aid in further research. (Please note-- use of this
subscription web-based service requires an IUSB network connection.)

Comprehensive Access to Statistical Information Now Available at the Statistical Universe Website

The Congressional Information Service, Inc. bills its Statistical Universe website as the "world's most
comprehensive access to statistical information." Now, through a new library-supported subscription, IUSB
network users can search an index to over
100,000 publications providing federal, state, and international statistics. (Please note-- use of this subscription
web-based service requires an IUSB network connection.) Statistical Universe can be used to find:

   - all statistics issued by the U.S. government back to 1973 through CIS' American Statistics Index
   - some 1,000 of the best statistical publications of private and state government sources from 1980 forward
through CIS' Statistical Reference Index
   - approximately 2,000 indispensable titles from some 100 international intergovernmental organizations, all
published annually since 1983 through CIS' Index to International Statistics

Search by such options as subject, title or publisher, and retrieve abstracts that include a detailed description of
a publication's statistical contents and primary bibliographic information like title, date, periodicity, and, where
applicable, the Superintendent of Documents (government) call number. In many cases, the abstract may also
contain links to the issuing agency's or publisher's website where the full text may be viewed and downloaded,
and to the full text on Statistical Universe, where the publication can be viewed, downloaded and accessed
section by section or table by table.

Censtats now freely available on the web

Censtats databases are now offered free of charge from the U.S. Census site

Census Tract numbers by typing in a street address.

The Schurz Library now has access to the Career Guidance Foundation's CollegeSource College Catalogs
