Direction of Trade Statistics, 1948-1980

Direction of Trade Statistics (DOTS) is a CD-ROM product located on the campus network. To access the data you must first install software on your computer.


To install and run the DOTS software you must:

  • be using a staff computer (with privileges to install software) or your own personal computer; the software cannot be installed on lab or kiosk computers
  • be using a MS Windows® computer. (Sorry, no Mac or linux versions available at this time).
  • be logged on to the Bowdoin network (Off campus access is not available at this time).

The setup files are located on the network. Paste this line into the "location" bar of a "My Computer" window. Follow the instructions in the setup program screens to install the data browser software on your computer.

  • \\microwave\dept\Library\CampusAccess\dots-historical\setup.exe

Alternatively, for most faculty and staff, "\\microwave\dept" is mapped to theJ: drive, in which case the following path should also work:

  • J:\Library\Campus Access\dots-historical\setup.exe
