Seeking Applications: Data Purchase Program

Need data that the library does not currently provide? Consider submitting an application to the Data Purchase Program.

The University Library is seeking applications from campus researchers who need numeric or spatial data purchased to support their research. The application deadline for first consideration is October 7, 2013.

In recent years, the library has purchased datasets related to residential property transactions for Chicago and New York City, genomic data on rats, and the geographic location of villages in Himachal Pradesh, India. All purchased data will be made available for general use by the campus community.

Awards will be announced December 1, 2013.

If you have questions about the Data Purchase Program, or have other data needs, such as locating data accessible publicly or through the library’s collections, or using statistical software, contact Karen Hogenboom, Numeric and Spatial Data Librarian,, or stop by the Scholarly Commons during Data Services Office Hours, 2-5 Monday through Friday.
