A Trial Is Now Available To PolicyMap

We have a month-long trial of PolicyMap through April 3, 2020. Give it a try, and let us know what you think.

Please take a moment to fill out this brief evaluation form.

PolicyMap is an online data and mapping tool for obtaining geographic data from authoritative sources like the Census, BLS, CDC, and dozens of other federal agencies and private data providers. It has thousands of indicators on demographics, the economy, housing, lending, quality of life, education, health, and more. Data is available at the neighborhood census block group in many cases, up to a national level, depending on the data.

PolicyMap can be used in education and research related to social sciences, urban studies, real estate and housing analysis, community and economic development, public administration, public health, policy and political science, education, business, economics, sociology, statistics, and geography, among others.


Coming Soon: Laptop Stands!

Does your laptop or tablet need a boost? Adjustable laptop stands will soon be available to checkout from the Library Circulation Desk.


NYC Open Data Week

February 29 – March 7 is Open Data Week in New York City. Open Data Week was created to bring attention to the treasure trove of resources that have become publicly accessible since NYC’s Open Data Law was signed into law on March 7, 2012. Here is a brief sample of the resources you can use to learn more about your city, borough, or community:

  • NYC Open Data: There are over 2,600 datasets that cover just about everything from 311 calls to the squirrel census in Central Park. The system lets you sort and filter the data,  create graphs and charts, and download for use in Excel.  
  • NYCityMap: Create maps showing data on capital projects, city programs, transportation, water quality, and much more for the entire city, borough, zip code, community district, intersection, or specific address.
  • NYC Planning Population FactFinder: Aggregated census data from the decennial census and also the American Community Survey.
  • Boardstat from BetaNYC: Discover issues and trends within community districts based on 311 service data.
  • NYC Boundaries Map: Find your community board, police precinct, election district, etc.   

Drug Interaction Checker

With the DynaMed Drug Interaction Checker you can…

  • Easily check a patient’s entire medication list at the same time
  • Quickly understand the severity of the interaction using the 5-point severity rating and supporting evidence
  • View results by severity, documentation and type of drug interaction
  • Search by brand and generic names of drugs
  • Interpret quality and type of interaction evidence with a four-level documentation rating system

Accessible to all DynaMed users from the main navigation, the drug interaction checker allows you to quickly and easily check for potentially harmful drug interactions.
