Data Support Services

Librarian consults with a student

Data Support

Science librarians offer data support services. We work in collaboration with the Library's Center for Digital Scholarship and can help you acquire and work with science related data such as GIS data. We can also help facilitate the use of tools for data analysis and visualization.

Data Management

Science librarians can also help you formulate or find resources for your data management plan to meet grant requirements.

The Library hosts Knowledge@UChicago, a digital repository that preserves and shares the scholarly, creative, and administrative assets of the University.  It is available to faculty, students and staff to deposit their scholarly articles and small data sets at this time with plans to expand its capacity in the future. Visit the Knowledge@UChicago faq page for more information.
