New Collaborative Resource: CADRE

Research Data Services is part of a new University-wide collaborative effort -- the Computational and Data Resource Exchange (CADRE). We've been working on a webpage to simplify the process of finding available research technology solutions on Grounds. The CADRE website provides a comprehensive list of the software, services, workshop and training opportunities, data resources, storage solutions, and computational hardware available to UVA scholars. Check it out! 

UVA Library Acquires Gallup Analytics

UVA Library is pleased to announce that we have acquired Gallup Analytics. Gallup offers economic, well-being, and political polling data collected daily in the US since 2008, and the data can be broken down by state or MSA. Gallup also provides the World Poll, which captures economic, social, and well-being data for 160+ countries.  Gallup Brain presents historical public opinion polling going back to 1935. This rich data source will be of interest to a wide number of fields, including the social sciences, health, public policy, education, and business.
