The Immigration Project is the latest in the TRAC series of reliable, non-partisan websites focusing on specific government activities. Supported by the JEHT Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and Syracuse University, this new project provides researchers, legislators, and the public with a wide range of information on immigration matters, based primarily on available government data. The site is divided into four segments. TRAC-authored publications are included in "Reports and Bulletins" and provide clearly written explanatory articles, supplemented with graphics. Data, charts and graphs detailing many different aspects of immigration in the United States are available in "Facts and Figures." Relevant government reports from sources such as the Congressional Research Service, federal agencies, and the Government Accountability Office are included in "Government Studies." The "Glossary" defines many immigration terms and acronyms. Though not keyword searchable, the site is neatly organized and easy to navigate. Email updates are available.
To be released August 2006 in beta form, WorldCat.org continues OCLC's efforts—begun with the Open WorldCat program—to make library resources more visible to Web users, and to increase awareness of libraries as a primary source of reliable information and helpful personal assistance. Where Open WorldCat inserts "Find in a Library" results within regular search engine results, WorldCat.org provides a permanent destination page and search box that lets a broader range of people discover the riches of library-held materials cataloged in the WorldCat databases.From TVC Alert.
