Data Discovery and Access

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,
  • talk researchers through licensing proprietary datasets, and
  • understand data documentation and codebooks.

Contact our Data Librarian, Jenn Huck, at to schedule an appointment. Learn more about our recommended top data sources and our licensed data.
