Data Discovery and Acquisition

Do you need help finding or accessing data for your research? Our Data Librarian can work with you to identify existing data sources and provide support for querying and downloading datasets from various software tools and online databases. We also manage the library’s collection of datasets and license data for academic research and teaching purposes.

We can help researchers:

  • develop effective search strategies for locating data,
  • access and use data sources licensed by the Library,
  • understand data documentation and codebooks.

Contact our Data Librarian, Jenn Huck, at data@virginia.edu to schedule an appointment.
