Data, Datasets, and Statistical Resources

Deciding How You'll Work With Your Data

The ways you plan to work with your data create important constraints in the process of looking for existing data or in the process of gathering data. When working with a librarian to find data, it helps to be able to answer questions about how you will be working with the data after you've found it. The purpose of this page is to highlight the range of resources available for working with data at different stages of the process. You can use these resources to learn more on your own, or seek help from professors or other campus resources who can provide more in-depth assistance.
