Research links of the week

Some good reference and statistical resources this week. A couple of these links came from a blog I heard about in an email, The Pedantic Pundit. Not recently updated but it links to some great research resources I hadn't seen anywhere else. Several links recently have come from Mark Schaver's Depth Reporting blog, always a great resource, including his links for reporters.
Of course I get all these links from varied sources that I check all the time, and don't attribute every one of them. (The last link is to my old website which has not been completely moved yet.)

  • Library of Congress: Science Reference Services with good links lists and research guides.
  • BIRTH Television Archive: 'the World's first internet archive of vintage from the early times of European television.'
  • Performing Arts Encyclopedia from Library of Congress.
  • The Encyclopedia of Television from the Museum of Broadcast Communications.

  • 2009 U.S. Budget, searchable in a free AskSam eBook.
  • Public Library of Law: Case search has advanced search options to search federal and state case law, plus codes and regulations.

  • School Data Direct, from The State Education Data Center (SEDC, with 'detailed education information and analysis for public schools, school districts, and state education systems'.
  • The U.S. Military Index from Foreign Policy, a survey of more than 3,400 active and retired officers at the highest levels of command about the state of the U.S. military.
  • Minority Data Resource Center from University of Michigan.
  • U.S. Population Predictions, 2005-2050 from Pew Research Center.
  • this site was almost killed but there's an announcement it will continue. Quick links to the latest economic reports.
