All About Ref Questions

Government Document Collection

University Libraries has been a Government Document Depository since 1901. Summer 2012 we had a major weeding and re-organization project. The SuDoc call numbers in this handout are now located in Compact Shelving.

Legal Research

This informational handout includes information about using Campus Research and LexixNexis Academic. Useful vocabulary to know for legal research is listed.

Two sample questions are included with results:

"I need a U.S. Supreme Court case from the last two years. I'd like it to be about "equal opportunity."

"Does the city of Wichita have the right to put fluoride in city water...?"

Bureau of Labor Statistics

The Consumer Price Index is used to calculate inflation, or the change in price of a basket of goods and services, as it impacts consumers.

The Producer Price Index measures changes in selling prices, thereby expressing price changes from the perspective of the seller who produces a particular commodity.
