New resources recently added to Libraries’ collections

The Libraries have added the following three resources to its collections:

SAGE Research Methods Cases, more than 500 specially commissioned case studies of social research projects that highlight project design and methods application. They demonstrate the obstacles and choices researchers face when their project moves from paper to the often messy real world of test subjects.

Pidgeon Digital provides access to talks (shown as online presentations) by key architects and designers. Notable speakers, both past and present, who continue to have a lasting influence include: Cedric Price, Denys Lasdun, Felix Candela, Frank Newby, James Stirling, Konrad Wachsmann, Maxwell Fry, Norman Foster, Peter Rice, Philip Johnson, Richard Buckminster Fuller, Richard Rogers, Serge Chermayeff, Ted Happold, and Zaha Hadid.

SHELDUS, Special Hazard Events and Losses Database for the United States, is a data set providing county-level information about natural hazard events, such thunderstorms, hurricanes, floods, wildfires, tornadoes, flash floods, heavy rainfall, etc., from 1960 to present. Compiled by the Hazards & Vulnerability Research Institute at the University of South Carolina, the database contains the date of an event, affected location (county and state), and the direct losses caused by the event (property and crop losses, injuries, and fatalities). Please note that only aggregate data is part of the subscription. For additional information, see the product FAQ.
