Would it be possible to subscribe to Stratfor? Stratfor is the private sectors version of the CIA and provide crucial information. I have had to use the information they provide in currently three separate reports and also at work. As a plus they offer huge discounts to education institutions. Thank you for your consideration.

Thank you for your suggestion. The goal of the library is to carefully build and manage substantive information resource collections that serve the University's varied academic programs. Many factors must be considered in the decision to subscribe to a database including relevance to the curriculum, reputation, accessibility, and cost. Because of budget limitations, we are not able to subscribe to all resources that students and faculty suggest. Still, we strongly encourage suggestions for resources from students, faculty, and researchers. Please see our Libraries Item Purchase Request form.
