Marketing Resources and Data-Planet News for Libraries: Data-Planet Access Information

Tools to help libraries communicate about the Data-Planet statistical repository with their communities.

Access to Data-Planet

The Data-Planet repository is accessible via two complementary interfaces:

 

Data-Planet Statistical Datasets is available via IP (and proxy server) authentication at http://statisticaldatasets.data-planet.com/dataplanet/. The Data-Planet Statistical Datasets interface allows users to browse available datasets by subject and source and to manipulate variables to create customized views of the data, as well as to search for statistics of interest via Quick and/or Advanced Search.

Data-Planet Statistical Ready Reference can be accessed directly at http://readyreference.data-planet.com. This access point connects users directly to Data-Planet's Quick and Advanced Search functions.

 

(EZproxy users, please visit here.)
