UPDATE – Statesman’s Yearbook

Tuesday, April 30 UPDATE: No news is bad news. Still not working.

Monday, April 29th UPDATE:  Sigh.  Not working again.  Really?  REALLY?

Wednesday, April 24 UPDATE: It appears that all is working in Statesman’s Yearbook. If you experience otherwise, please contact Carolyn DeLuca (2-5012) as soon as you spot the problem.  Thanks for your patience.

Tuesday, April 23 UPDATE: Still not working. Still working with tech support, who have asked me the same questions over and over with the same result – no access. This is getting tedious. Yikes!  This is a terrible update.  I wish I had better news.

It appears we’ve been having technical difficulties all weekend with access to the Statesman’s Yearbook, which is a bummer cuz I know there’s at least one person out there who is really itching to use it.  I’ve been working with Palgrave (Statesman’s Yearbook parent company) all day to figure out the problem and they seem to be stymied.  Rest assured, they are still working on the problem and I’m still troubleshooting with them.  However, in the meantime where does that leave you SY fans?  Thankfully, not totally out there in the cold (and snow).  You can contact a librarian to get a particular report from the SY if need be (it sometimes works from on campus), or you can try using the following, similar sources:

  • Political Handbook of the World Online Edition
    Political science and journalism researchers will find this resource useful for comprehensive country profiles, chronicles of national history, government, and political parties, as well as information on intergovernmental organizations, development banks, and the agencies and specialized bodies of the United Nations.
  • World Factbook
    Produced by the CIA, each country’s profile includes such information as demographics, and political, economic, and geographic data.
  • Political Risk Yearbook
    Provides 45-65 page overviews of the history, economy, politics, and risk forecasts for 100 countries. It provides 10 years of economic data, with description and analysis of the political players and situation written by experts.
