A year of Research. You rocked it!

You rocked the research this year!

 

Check it out.

 

Over 10,000 visits were made to the top 3 research guides.

What library eCollections did you love?

  • Over 887 statistical charts retrieved using Statista.
  • Searched ArtStor 1,885 times.
  • Searched JSTOR 3,048 times.
  • Opened eBooks on the ebrary platform 6,835 times.

 

 

Collectively, you asked me more than 200 research questions, mostly via email (over 150), and also via Canvas, office hours in the Schoolhouse and in-person at the Library.

 

And finally, another year has gone by in which every SPS student has had a Ms. Sanborn research class (at least one!) during the school year.

 

I heart your research!

Dear Hum. V,

Great to see you this week!

 

I loved your mind-mapping of the ‘Scholarly Conversation.’

 

When you’re ready to leap into the academic literature, here’s the page in the research guide (screenshot below) listing four databases providing just that.

 

As always, please be in touch with any research-y queries!  I love hearing from you. 🙂

Congressional Digest: New eCollection

By - Research & Instruction Librarian February 16th, 2016

What is it?

Congressional Digest was founded in 1921 by suffragette Alice Gram Robinson, with the aim of providing voters with impartial reporting on high-interest issues.  Each issue features an impartial overview on a contemporary topic with pro and con viewpoints written by members of the U.S. Congress.

 

The library’s digital subscription to Congressional Digest includes issues dating back to 1998 and also includes Supreme Court Debates and the archive of the (now ceased) International Debate reports.
