Changing course

News  from New York: in a moment of historic irony, the $860 million Rockefeller Brothers Fund announced it will divest itself from fossil fuels. The family that became synonymous with the oil industry is making the decision to join the growing ‘divestment movement’ that now includes 180 institutions (including Stanford) and hundreds of wealthy individuals.  Aware of the complexities involved Stephen Heintz, President of the Fund, noted “We’re moving soberly, but with real commitment.”   Is John D rolling in his grave — or would he approve?

Free data? Free data!

Looking for websites on a business topic or industry?  Consider the Library’s Business Web Sites  —  nearly 140 different sites on a fantastic range of topics. Coverage includes accounting, baseball, biotech, commodities, housing, international statistics, marketing, mutual funds, patents, private equity, real estate, supermarkets, video games and much more. All of these sites should have free information but, since Stanford is not paying for access, at some point you might run up against some restricted material. Of course at that point you might choose to purchase the data, if it suits you. But there is so much free information on industries and financial topics that you may be satisfied with what is readily available. And as always, if you are not finding what you need, just ask a librarian for help.
