OECD Statistics, Books & Periodicals

source_oecd_factbookIf you came to love the free beta SourceOECD with it’s fabulous access to international statistics, books and reports and mourned it’s loss when free access was terminated, have we got good news for you! Falvey Memorial Library has been able to subscribe to the full compliment of SourceOECD resources.

OECDStat (the statistical component) is an interactive database of comparable international data on everything from aid to welfare. Both OECD and non-OECD country data are often included. The time series data are customizable and downloadable to Excel or text files for statistical packages. This resource is ideal for students working on theses and faculty research with global comparative components.

Over two dozen periodicals published by the OECD are available in full text. Many of the articles in these periodicals are indexed elsewhere in article databases such as EconLit, ABI Inform, and PAIS International. Periodical titles are also discoverable from our catalog or E-Journals by Title.

All of the books and working papers published by the OECD since 1998 are also included in our subscription. Students of geography, public policy and economics will find a wealth of information and analysis here. OECD country studies cover everything from taxation to social issues, technology and industry. Stand alone comparitive studies on controversial topics such as health care delivery, migration policy, genetic testing, work and family life balance, educational finance policy, corporate social responsibility and urban redevelopment to name a few will be helpful for persuasive papers and presentations. The thousands of OECD books included in the collection can not be found in our catalog, there are only available via the SourceOECD database.

We’re hoping that this resource will become a favorite for freshmen and faculty alike. SourceOECD is available in it’s entirety via Databases A-Z, and select Subject pages. Let us know what you think!
