Marketing Resources and Data Planet News for Libraries: Marketing Resources for Your Library

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

Marketing Tools for Library Outreach

The resources below are provided to help the library communicate to staff, faculty, and students about Data Planet Statistical Datasets and Data Planet Statistical Ready Reference. The vast Data Planet repository, searchable through two complementary interfaces, offers a tremendous depth of statistical data supporting teaching and learning across the curriculum. 

We'll be happy to offer additional tools—contact us anytime with your suggestions! 

We also encourage you to check out and reuse our growing collection of subject and dataset-specific guides, available here.

Access to Data Planet

Data Planet is available via IP (and proxy server) authentication at The Data Planet  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.

(EZproxy users, please visit here.)

Alumni Access

University alumni may have access to the content hosted on SAGE and CQ Press platforms through their university library, based on their university's current and active holdings. All alumni registered with subscribing or purchasing libraries will be able to access these resources, including more than 1,000 scholarly and professional journals at no extra fee.

University libraries already support current students and scholars with access to online resources through both on-site and remote services. This license extends this offering to alumni via IP address through the institution’s account. SAGE does not have the information or systems necessary to authenticate an individual as being an alumnus of a particular institution. Because of this, institutions will need to manage the authentication process and provide alumni with a route through the institutional IP network. Please contact your designated sales representative with any questions.
