New Resources – NewsBank and RAND State Statistics

CPCC Libraries now has access to two new resources: RAND State Statistics and NewsBank.

RAND State Statistics

Need to find out if crimes are on the rise or decline in a specific state or county?  Interested in seeing what programs your tax money is spent on in your hometown?  Want to know about the employment outlook for your career field?  All of these questions and more can be answered by the RAND State Statistics database.  RAND State Statistics contains nearly 80 databases that cover a wide range of categories: business and economics, community, education, energy and environment, government finance, health and population


NewsBank provides access to thousands of newspapers, both nationally and worldwide.  In particular, it provides access to several local newspapers: The Charlotte Observer, The Charlotte Post and The Mecklenburg Times. NewsBank is a perfect source for conducting research on local or state issues.

These resources may be accessed by clicking the highlighted links above or from the Research Databases section of the library website.
