Social science data discussion group
Library reference and research services across campus are receiving a large number of requests for social science statistics and data. In response, several groups have come together to form a new discussion group focused on finding and using social science data. Each discussion will include a demonstration of a resource, tool, or service, followed by a discussion, co-learning, and, of course, networking.
Co-sponsored by BLAST (Business, Labor and Similar Topics), and the Reference & Outreach Committee (R&O), topics will include finding and using social surveys, census data, public opinion polls, economic and business statistics, online data analysis tools, and more.
Meetings will take place on the 3rd Tuesday of the month, from 1-2pm, in Olin 106 G (please note exception, below).
