Seasonal changes to Library Hours
With the arrival of post-semester vacation days, we have put up the Intersession Hours for SAIS Library
See you in January!
New database: Canada lovers love E-STAT!
This database is Statistics Canada's
interactive warehouse of statistics about Canada. It includes such publications such as Canadian Social Trends, Health Reports, Human Activity and the Environment, Juristat
and many others. There are over 2,400 tables tracking trends in virtually every aspect of the lives of Canadians. Please note that E-STAT does not work with JHU's remote access tools.
The SAIS Library staff says (or shouts)...
TO ALL DECEMBER '05 GRADS!
We'll see the rest of you in January. Have a relaxing vacation!
