Digest of Education Statistics

The primary purpose of the Digest of Education Statistics is to provide a compilation of statistical information covering the broad field of American education from prekindergarten through graduate school. The Digest includes a selection of data from many sources, both government and private, and draws especially on the results of surveys and activities carried out by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).

Education Reference Sources


Print Reference Sources

Here's a partial list of print reference sources that the Carmichael Library owns.  To locate these books, look on the main floor stacks that are labled "Reference."  Or, you can search online.  When searching in the online catalogue, you'll be able to identify reference sources by the Ref. that prefaces each call number.

 If you have any problems finding sources, stop by the reference desk, which is at the main floor of the library.
