Glad you found a source for your needs.
I have the benefit of being an alumnus of several schools, teaching at
some and a niece who is a librarian and who keeps me informed of
resources that might interest me. Way back in one of my former lives,
I participated in a precursor to the Internet, linking databases of
private, public  and government institutions via satellite and land
based communications.
My fifteen minutes of fame were when, in setting up a messaging
system, it was decided that the size of the field for addressee names
be based on my last name, that being the longest one.
Another resource, besides libraries and schools, is professional
associations. What are you going to do with your degree? Is there a
group for people in that field?
