We are pleased to announce the addition of a new database from ICPSR (Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research ). The ICPSR is a group of over 700 universities working together to collect data sets and preserve research data for future use. The archive contains more than 500,000 data sets covering fields including education, aging, criminal justice, substance abuse, terrorism, and other fields. This is unlike any other databases to which the library subscribes, and will be a crucial resource for students and faculty in social science fields.
While you can access the database from on or off campus via the library website, you should create a personal user account if you will be accessing data sets. Once you have created this account, you can go directly the to ICPSR website to sign in without going through the library website. Please this guide for more information.
