The Official State of Georgia Tabulations by Counties …, which contains election statistics for 1950-1994, has been digitized and is now available in the Georgia Government Publications database.
Socrates: The Social Ratings Monitor database has been canceled. It has been removed from the GALILEO and GALILEO@UGA menus.
The database was canceled at the request of the faculty member who originally requested it. It has been replaced by KLD STATS, a database from the same vendor that gives historical rather than current data about various aspects of corporate social responsibility. KLD STATS is available on the Wharton Research Database Services (WRDS) platform to UGA graduate students and faculty only. Users outside the library must first set up a WRDS account through the Terry College of Business. The database is also available through WRDS to UGA graduate students and faculty only at the two Data Services computers next to the ILL Department.
Please contact John Campbell (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions about this resource.
ICPSR now permits downloading of its datasets by UGA faculty, students, and staff from off-campus IP addresses. Each new user must first create a MyData account from an on-campus location (does not have to be the library). Account holders can then log on to their ICPSR MyData account from off-campus addresses and proceed to download data. Please note that all account holders must still log on at least once every 6 months from an on-campus IP address to revalidate their account for off-campus use. Users who need to be away from campus for a long time may also contact ICPSR personnel (or Data Services Librarian John Prechtel) to arrange to revalidate their MyData account.
This is welcome news because ICPSR datasets are transferred in zipped format which is not a permitted file type at many workstations on campus including all public and lab workstations at the Libraries and the SLC, with the exception of the two Data Services workstations at Main.
