Support for secondary data sources

Research Data Services offers support in using online resources to collect data. These online resources include both open (free) and commercial datasets. Among the main supported data sources are Datastream, SDC Platinum and Wharton.

You can find all the information you need on Blackboard: databases, online tutorials, guidelines and more. From January to June, we also have a walk-in help desk.
