New! Free World Bank Resources!
A librarian at Drake reported to this blogger that many World Bank reports and statistics that were only available by subscription before are now available for free. If you go to their "Data Catalog" page you'll see the extensive listing of resources they have opened up. Lot's on finance, banking etc. of course, but other topics as well, for example education and gender. (If you ever wondered what the World Bank is see their "about us" page. They aren't a bank in the conventional sense. Pictured here is the World Bank building in Washington D.C..)
