The PG Library is incredibly excited to announce that we have added four new resources to our collections. This is in addition to IBISWorld added last month. All combined, these resources help the Library better fulfill its mission to connect our community to the information they need. In particular, this set of resources focuses on providing statistical and ready reference information, helping to answer foundational questions about topics, and providing the data needed to practice necessary skills like analyzing trends and interpreting statistics. The resources are available immediately, and links have been added to our Databases A-Z page and integrated into EBSCO Discovery Service where possible.

Below are details about the new resources and bookmarkable links to each.
