I’m pleased to let you know that following a successful trial earlier this year the Library has recently purchased Historical Statistics of the United States: Millennial Edition Online.
Historical Statistics of the United States (HSUS) is a compendium of statistics about the United States and is the standard source for the quantitative facts of American history.
HSUS Online is fully searchable and has features that allow you to save search criteria, search within a chapter or volume, bookmark tables, view tables in PDF or HTML format, select certain years or series of years to view, create charts and graphs and much more.
Access to this resource is only available to current staff and students at University of Edinburgh.
The Library already holds the print edition of Historical Statistics of the United States, for location and shelfmark information see DiscoverEd.
