On Sunday, March 15, UNH IT will perform a hardware upgrade from 4:00 AM until 12:00 PM. This maintenance will impact all UNH Information Technology-supplied services. General Internet service to all campuses should not be impacted.
During this time, off-campus access to Library databases will also be unavailable.
If you have questions, please submit an online IT request form at https://www.unh.edu/it/help.
The Library is currently subscribed to a new database trial, through October 31, 2014: PolicyMap.
PolicyMap is a US-National web-based Geographic Information System used to understand communities. It is a “GIS tool for non-GIS experts” for those who need to visualize large amounts of data quickly and easily, often down to the census tract or block group level. Included in the tool is access to PolicyMap’s extensive data collection, with 15,000+ indicators used to understand communities, organized into general categories including demographics, income and spending, housing, lending activity, quality of life, economy, education, health, federal guidelines, and other analysis. In addition, students and faculty can easily upload and incorporate their data into and leverage it against the thousands of indicators already available in PolicyMap.
As always, if this database is useful for your research, please leave a comment here or contact our electronic resources librarian.
