CSU Library regularly collects statistics from the website to give an indication as to what our users are seeking and requesting. Our statistics for April 2009 show that many of our users have been trying to locate online articles from the Business Review Weekly (BRW), which up until now has been available only in print.
The good news is that Library has recently purchased a subscription to afr.com, the exclusive source of full-text articles from Fairfax Business Media publications including The Australian Financial Review and Business Review Weekly, as well as over twenty other Fairfax news and information sources including the major Fairfax dailies and even The New York Times.
afr.com also includes a range of financial charts and investment tools.
