New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics Database

By Robert Flatley
Coordinator of Electronic Resources, Interlibrary Loan, and Periodicals

The Library is pleased to announce the acquisition of the New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics Online, 2nd edition.

An extensive and authoritative economics reference resource which contains over 1850 articles by more than 1500 of the world’s leading economists. "In 2008, Palgrave Macmillan published The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics, 2nd edition, edited by Steven N. Durlauf and Lawrence E. Blume. While some classic articles from the 1987 were retained, around 80% of the text was either entirely new or substantially rewritten to reflect the depth of change within the discipline between the editions. This new edition retains the inspiring tradition of bringing together the world's most influential economists writing in their own voice on their areas of expertise, but in its online incarnation it has married this tradition with the benefits of a dynamic, updated resource serving the information needs of a new generation of economists."
