Food For Fines!

Beginning April 3rd until the end of the semester, Wayne College Library will be accepting non-perishable food items in lieu of money owed on fines!

Items most needed are:
• cereal
• applesauce
• canned pasta dinners (ravioli or SpaghettiOs)
• crackers
• peanut butter

Canned and non-perishable items will be accepted at one item for every dollar owed. Sorry, we cannot forgive charges associated with lost materials replacement as part of this fine forgiveness campaign.

Even if you do not have any library fines, please consider contributing to this worthy cause.

All items collected will be donated to People to People Ministries.

If you have any questions you can contact Tina Kilcullen at tkilcul@uakron.edu.

New Research Database for Statistics

The research database, Statista, is now available to UA users. It offers access to 1 million facts and statistics that are ready to use in PPT, XLS and PNG. In promotional material released by Statista, current users of the database say that Statista saves them a lot of time when conducting their research because their search for data is done -Statista is one-stop shopping. Users just type in a keyword or browse by topic which include over 600 industries.

On a personal note, I was amazed by the variety of subjects covered by Statista and by my search results. My test search on the topic of tea returned a statistical overview of the industry in the United States, the leading tea brands, a market forecast, consumer data, an infographic and much more! I recommend that all researchers give this database a try!
