Search - The University of Arizona Campus Repository This dissertation examined the relationship between Hispanic population proportion (HPROP) and an index variable indicating the provision of library services to the Spanish-speaking in the State of Arizona (PLSS). Mailed in the summer of 1999 to 169 public library facilities, a survey collected information on libraries' provision of Spanish-speaking personnel, Spanish-language materials, and Spanish-format library services. Regression analysis indicated that HPROP has a significant effect upon PLSS (B = .600, p < .0001). An analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) procedure indicated that libraries in metropolitan areas were more likely than non-metropolitan libraries to provide service to Spanish-speakers (F = 106.72, p < .0001).

colwiz | Your Research Life - Organized The Embedded Librarian | Exploring New, Embedded Roles for Librarians in Organizations of All Types EndNote - EndNote X3 doesn't have the Emory U connection file to connect directly to EUCLID.

Should I use one library for all my references, or separate libraries for different projects? It's entirely up to you; there's no right or wrong way to organize your files. However, it is usually recommended to have one library to make it easier to create bibliograpies in Word. I already have a long bibliography that I typed in Word. Unfortunately there's no way to do this automatically. How do I download search results from my favorite database into EndNote? Every database works a little differently. I tried using a connection file to search a database, but it asks for a password. EndNote includes connection files for databases to which Emory doesn't subscribe, so you may not be able to connect. How do I add page numbers to an in-text citation?
