It’s great to support your points in a paper or presentation with statistics and numbers, but reliable data can be hard to find and even trickier to cite. Resnick Library is running a trial of a new database that can solve these kinds of problems. It’s called Statista, and it provides statistics and data for a wide variety of topics.
For example, have you ever wondered what the most popular songs to stream were in 2015? Statista has a graph for that:
Plus, we pulled up this MLA citation at the click of a button (no librarians were harmed in the making of this citation):
Nielsen. “Most Popular Songs in The United States in 2015, by Number of On-demand Streams.” Statista – The Statistics Portal. Statista. January 2016. Web. 4 Mar 2016.
We hope that you are enjoying this chance to connect with family and friends.
The Resnick Library will close at 5pm on Tuesday November 24th and REMAIN CLOSED until Sunday November 29th at 6pm.
Wednesday – Saturday: Closed
Monday November 30th, resume normal hours at 7:30am
