Find Statistics Easier With New Online Library Guide

Brown Library is putting the power of statistical information in your hands. Our new Statistics LibGuide, short for Library Guide, is a website with links to nearly 60 governmental and not-for-profit statistics sites. It just got much easier for you to find statistical information for your papers and projects. Find statistics on population, crime, religious beliefs, health-related topics, and the environment, among others. Go to the Brown Library page, choose “Research Tools” on the left, then “Research Guides.” There you will find the statistics guide and other LibGuides specific to classes offered here at Virginia Western.

Please contact us if you have any questions or need help with your research assignments.
