The Data Center of the UL provides help and support to students as well as teachers and researchers in finding economic and financial data.
More than 20 different databases (like SDC Platinum, Wharton and Datastream) are supported which contain financial data, economic data and reports, or consumer and market data.

The following services are available:

  • Training and workshops in several databases (see Data Center workshops in Agenda)
  • Advice when selecting databases for your research
  • Help and support using databases and downloading data.


Support: online and consultation
Information and support is available in the Blackboard course of the UL Data Center. This includes instruction movies, manuals, tools etc.
