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 accessing 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,
  • purchase “small” datasets,
  • understand data documentation and codebooks.

Contact our Data Librarian, Jenn Huck, at to schedule an appointment. Explore these pages to learn more about our data collections or visit our Data Sources Guide. And subscribe to our monthly Research Data Services Newsletter to learn about new resources.
