The Library has launched a new directory of bibliographical databases, bibliographical software and reference works for economic literature and data science. The new directory is structured to provide synergies between online bibliographical databases and ‘traditional’ reference works and bibliographies. The new directory has the following structure:
- Online bibliographies / finding literature in economics and statistical science (EconLit, Web of Science and RePEc, &c.)
- Software for bibliography-building (EndNote, Zotero)
- Major reference works in economics and statistical science (Palgrave Dictionary of Economics, North-Holland/Elsevier Handbooks, Oxford Dictionary of Economics, &c.)
- EUI Library economics-related bibliographies (Bibliography of the Global Financial and Economic Crisis, Bibliography of the Euro and European Monetary Union &c.)
The EUI Library launched a new Economics Working Papers Directory on 28 March. The Directory includes (i) searchable databases of international economics working paper series – including Library-subscribed series (ii) EUI working papers (iii) how to order older economics working papers from storage and (iv) an index of prominent institutional publishers of working papers.
Eurostat has launched a new data access application procedure for micro data. From January 2017, EUI members should use the new Microdata Access Worlkflow Tool – which requires Principal Investigators to register via the EU Login authentication service.
The EUI Researcher – or Principal Investigator in a research team – should create an EU Login for the project application. (It is not necessary for all members of a research team to have a login.)
