Data

The Flood of Information - Whadda We Do with It?

Everydata by John JohnsonYou've probably felt it: we're bombarded today with information coming from every direction. Sometimes the sheer volume of information you're exposed to can make it hard to understand and make decisions based on it. There's a great eBook on this in our Hoopla eLibrary called Everydata: The Misinformation Hidden in the Little Data You Consume Every Day by John H. Johnson and Mike Gluck. (And checking out an eBook this year helps us reach our Project Mill-E goal of checking out one million eBooks and eAudiobooks in 2016. As of today, we're 81% there.) 

Research Data User-Friendly

Research is one of many criteria for anyone going to school. Whether it be at the Elementary Level, Middle School, High School, or at the University Level, it is something we will eventually need to use.  Therefore, we would like to be of assistance. Harris County has a database which is user friendly and is in subject order. Just go to www.hcpl.net, and click database. Choose your database then type in your library card number. If you do not have a library card, stop by the Northwest Branch and sign up for  one. All we need is proof of mailing address..
