Hurrah, it’s the International Year of Statistics!

Yes, 2013 is the International Year of Statistics! Time to celebrate with a number-crunching party? Or learning new facts and figures to assure success at the pub quiz?

As for the Library, here are some interesting statistics for 2013 so far:

  • There have been over 50,000 checkouts
  • The School of Social Sciences has been the most active in borrowing items, with twice as many checkouts as the School of Arts
  • Library staff have answered 2,600 questions and spent a total of 1 day, 1 hour, and 37 minutes helping users by online chat

If you’re using statistics for your studies, ASK have some recommended resources on their stats and SPSS webpages, and we have a wide range of statistics books in the Library. Here are a few:
