Data Discovery and Acquisition

Do you need help finding or accessing data for your research? Our Data Librarian can work with you to

  • search for and locate existing data sources,
  • access and use data sources, software tools, and online databases licensed by the Library,
  • purchase “small” data sets as part of our managed collection,
  • understand data documentation and codebooks.
