Data Discovery and Reuse

Research Informatics & Publishing, along with a number of librarians across the University Libraries, supports researchers from all disciplines to find and prepare data from internal and external sources. Services are available for undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, staff, and faculty at all Penn State campuses at no cost. 

Support includes assistance with identifying data sources, including discipline-specific data repositories and databases available through the University Libraries; how to clean, subset, or merge data from different sources; citing data sources; and handling restricted data.
