LatinNews Intelligence Service
LatinNews Intelligence Service has been providing international companies and academic institutions with independent analysis on the political, economic and business environment in Latin America since 1967. Its range of resources offers subscribers a reliable, accurate and timely source of insight into key events that shape the region and covers countries from Mexico to Chile. The various reports included in the service cover economy and business, security and strategic review, daily news, and special topics by country and by region. WPI’s trial runs until February 15, 2016. Let us know what you think about this resource.
JSTOR is currently testing a beta version of JSTOR Sustainability with researchers working in related fields and WPI is participating in the test which will run through June 30, 2016. The beta site contains hundreds of thousands of articles and research reports in fields including environmental studies, environmental law, resource and environmental economics, urban studies, food security and agriculture, energy studies, and more. You can also test drive features to help navigate content outside of your discipline – including topic pages, guides to influential articles, and background reading recommendations. You may occasionally see surveys on the site about whether JSTOR Sustainability meets your research and teaching needs, and you can also provide feedback on the platform at any time via the comments box on the site. Of course, we at the Gordon Library also want your feedback which you can send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
