Economics: Research Help

Welcome to the Economics Research Guide!

This guide is to help you get a jumpstart on Economics Research by giving an overview of what Economics Resources are available in the library, along with some quick tips on how to find and use them.

Databases

Sherratt Library provides access to a number of databases on a wide range of subjects. Below is a list of databases with content related to Economics:

Other Online Resources

  • Data.Gov 
    • The U.S. government is one of the biggest publishers of data in the world. This site searches their datasets. Data.gov is the home of the U.S. Government’s open data. Here you will find data, tools, and resources to conduct research, develop web and mobile applications, design data visualizations, and more.
  • DataONE Search 
    • Data Observation Network for Earth (DataONE) is a community driven project providing access to data across multiple member repositories, supporting enhanced search and discovery of Earth and environmental data. DataONE promotes best practices in data management through responsive educational resources and materials.
  • Google Dataset Search 
    • Dataset Search enables users to find datasets stored across the Web through a simple keyword search. The tool surfaces information about datasets hosted in thousands of repositories across the Web, making these datasets universally accessible and useful.
  • Registry of Research Data Repositories 
    • re3data.org searches data repositories in the U.S. and Europe. re3data.org is a global registry of research data repositories that covers research data repositories from different academic disciplines. It presents repositories for the permanent storage and access of data sets to researchers, funding bodies, publishers and scholarly institutions. re3data.org promotes a culture of sharing, increased access and better visibility of research data.
  • U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) 
    • This is the official SEC site where filings for publicly traded companies can be found. You can also find mutual fund filings here as well. The Forms List link explains what information is collected in all the various forms.

Journals and Periodicals

Although many of the journals we have in Sherratt Library are available in electronic form, there are times when a print copy is the way to go.

Follow this link to see the top journals in Business.  Click on Subcategories and pick a field like Economic History or Economics to see a list of the top journals in that field.  Once you find a title you are interested in, please search that title by following the link Find Journal by Title on the library’s homepage.  This will indicate whether we have the journal in print or in databases, which databases, and the dates covered.

Books and Ebooks

Here at Sherratt Library, we use the Library of Congress classification system (call numbers) to organize most of our items, including print books and e-books. Below is a general list of call numbers that relate to Economics (they can help you find items faster).

  • HB - Economic Theory, Demography
  • HC - Economic History and Conditions
