There is also a "calculators" page that serves as a "see" reference to the pages for "financial calculators" and "graphing calculators."
Feel free to edit these entries in the wiki (and any others) as needed.
For U.S. listed companies there is also a link to "EDGAR’ where you will find the first 25 filings made in the last 90 days. This is not a very useful feature because if insiders have been filing form 4's that might be the only type of report you will find.

1. Search in the company's SEC filings and on the company website for the words "supplier" or "supply-chain."
2. Use ThomsonOne Analytics and search the text of analysts' reports.
3. Look at the company's joint ventures or alliances to see if the company is vertically integrated.
4. Make a list of the actual products that go into the supply chain and find out which companies are the key suppliers of those products. Use these companies as proxies for the actual suppliers or
5. Take the names of these companies and search their 10-K's for your company's name. Companies often name their key customers in their filings.

- "People who borrowed this item, also borrowed" feature
- "Floor plans" feature showing shelf location
Finally, the public display of the catalog at the Ann Arbor District Library uses blogging software (in fact, the whole library web site is managed using blogging software). When you view an item record, you can even click a link for "card catalog image" view of the record; try it for the record for Ellen Schrecker's No Ivory Tower. You can even add your own marginalia to the card!
As we acquire new online resources for the library and as we continue to refine the CUNY+ interface, we should keep in mind how other libraries have been retooling and reinventing the look and feel of user interfaces.

Journal of Behavioral Finance "Scholarly Journal
Journal of Mass Media Ethics Scholarly Journal
Journal of Media Economics Scholarly Journal
Journal of Public Relations Research Scholarly Journal"
However, not all 4 seemed to be listed in the source publications and of the 2 that
are there, JBF and JPRR, the blurb doesn't indicate PDF. One sees the PDF tab only when the article is opened. I didn't see any images although perhaps they are there.

As a follow-up to my presentation about NetLibrary, the following is a description of the three collection development programs through which new titles can be acquired:
- TitleSelect: Titles can be ordered individually from the full NetLibrary catalog. Titles can be selected by searching, by browsing subject areas, or by editing subject collections.
- TitleDirect: Libraries can create a profile and a list of library “selectors and reviewers.” Content lists are periodically generated and emailed to selectors and reviewers. After the library review process is completed, preferred titles are ordered.
- Patron Driven Acquisition: NetLibrary makes available a large selection of titles meeting the profile determined by the library. As soon as any title is accessed a second time, it is automatically acquired. The library can specify a spending limit.
NetLibrary’s pricing structure is list price + a one-time access fee of 55% for ‘ownership,’ or list price + 15% for annual access. Discounted “subject sets” are also available.
