Adams: GSTR 110 (Fall 2020)

Print and e-Books

**********      A special note related to Covid-19:      *************
For the fall of 2020, in the interest of everyone's continued safety, we ask that students do not travel to the library's third floor to retrieve books.
We ask that you instead request books that you want to check out by sending a list of the titles you need to the Circulation Desk at:
If you are on campus, the books will be pulled and checked out to you, for you to pick up at the Circulation Desk.
If you are off-campus, we will be glad to mail them to your home at no cost to you. 
An alternative to print books are e-books, which are available online 24/7.

To ensure you retrieve periodicals when you search, limit your search results to "magazines" or "newspapers".

Academic Journals


To ensure you retrieve scholarly, peer-reviewed articles when you search, limit your search results to "scholarly" and "peer-reviewed"

Reference Books

What is a reference work?

A book (such as a dictionary, encyclopedia, handbook, etc.) intended primarily for consultation rather than for consecutive reading. Usually, these contain short, fact-driven entries.

How do you find reference works?

Why Use Data?

  • Data can help us strengthen our argument.
  • Data, such as statistics and demographics can help us analyze trends and relationships between economic, social, cultural, and biological processes influencing a population.
  • Data can transform something abstract into something everyone can understand and relate to. For example, data can reveal how some abstract threat such as unemployment affects people based on their age, gender, or education. (From the Data Journalism Handbook
