Our Coolest CBPA Databases

A few databases, provided by Cowles Library, that might be interesting and useful for all CBPA'ers!

Learning Express Library

Learning Express Library has practical information for everyone: Taking the LSAT or GRE? Need to spruce up your resume? Need a quick video on how to use Excel? Set up your own account, and it will track what you've seen (and where you left off).

Unemployment Research

Do you know what "Job Polarization" is?  (It's probably NOT what you think!) The Urban Institute has put together a wide-ranging and worthwhile Web portal on various current aspects of unemployment.
