The database for predominantly used to research international news sources, Factiva, has recently improved its log in access.

This means no more “network\” for this database; it also means that the A-to-Z/Find it at Lincoln will link directly to a specific journal title rather than just to the database homepage.

Example: the Lincolnshire Echo – http://lncn.eu/cky6

You can still find the database listed under http://www.library.lincoln.ac.uk > more resources > databases > F > Factiva…

And, if you didn’t already know, Factiva contains a Financial Times archive, alongside the ABI Inform database .

 

 

Just to let you know that Laura Pearson, our maths and stats colleague has added some more SPSS workshops to the MASH website.

Please email Laura at mash@lincoln.ac.uk to book you place

SPSS For Beginners –  28th November, 4-5 pm, Room UL101 in the Library

This is for you if you know SPSS is going to be part of your course and you’d like a brief overview of what it is and how to navigate around it. By the end of this session you will know how to input various forms of data, run some analysis to gain descriptives and frequencies.

 

SPSS For Intermediates – 5th December, 4-5 pm, Room UL101 in the Library

This is for you if you know a bit about SPSS, maybe had some work using SPSS in previous years and are a little rusty. By the end of this session you will know how to set up a data set for the different t-tests, to run the analysis and begin to interpret the output.

Cartoon Student Grades

 

Helen Williams, our colleague in the Business School has put together a Library guide to help distance learning students. The link to the guide is here: Distance Learner subject guide.

We now have a tab on the Business School subject guide that redirects users to the Distance Learner guide.

As usual if you have any problems using or accessing our resources, contact Daren or Martin via the Business Librarian email.
