Visitors can browse the Map by selecting one of the 97 included countries. Within each country, users can then check out organizations that use open data by the city where they are headquartered. Alternatively, visitors can explore open data usage by Region of the world or by Sector. As an included infographic reveals, government open data is most frequently used by Information Technology (IT) and Geospatial organizations. Finally, visitors may opt to browse this data by name of Organization (the site features 1,727 in total). The Map is accompanied by a 28-page report.

The Museum lives in three iconic sites in New York City—The Met Fifth Avenue, The Met Breuer, and The Met Cloisters. Millions of people also take part in The Met experience online. Since it was founded in 1870, The Met has always aspired to be more than a treasury of rare and beautiful objects. Every day, art comes alive in the Museum's galleries and through its exhibitions and events, revealing both new ideas and unexpected connections across time and across cultures.

Peek A Tab
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/peek-a-tab/nnpdamdaknpnohmlbnmgphiodghbohop?hl=en

Anyone who browses the internet with multiple tabs open knows that doing so can both help and hinder productivity: while multiple tabs allow users to quickly switch between websites and documents, it can also clutter one's browser so that it is difficult to remember what tabs are open. Peek A Tab, a free extension for Google Chrome, may be the answer. Users can install it with just one click. Once installed, visitors can select a small Peek A Tab icon, which will appear on the upper right corner of their browser, to see an easily readable, vertical list of all currently opened tabs. Users can then quickly visit - or close - tabs using this list. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™.

Beyond Citation
http://www.beyondcitation.org

Researchers, students, and instructors use academic databases to find scholarship on topics of interest. Yet it is difficult to get information about how these databases work and what materials are included in - or left out of - them. In response to this challenge, a group of students in a Digital Praxis Seminar at the City University of New York (CUNY) created Beyond Citation, a website dedicated to providing the public with information and analysis about major academic search engines. As of this writing, Beyond Citation features explorations of thirteen major databases, including Google Books, Project MUSE, HathiTrust Digital Library, JSTOR, and ProQuest Historical Newspapers. Each database record includes an Overview outlining what the database contains, available Reviews of each database, and information about Access. In addition, readers will also find a useful Conversations feature, which offers links to outside analysis and criticism about the selected database. Beyond Citation not only helps researchers critically evaluate databases, but also teaches researchers how to use these databases most effectively. This will be added to Academic and Scholar Search Engines and Sources white paper. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™.
