Restricted-use Data Room

The Sheridan Libraries are pleased to announce the availability of a room for faculty and student researchers to use when they have obtained permission to work with a restricted-access dataset. 

Datasets that fall under this category are those that generally require some sort of formal agreement with the data provider to ensure the security of the data while it is in the researcher's possession. These data are usually restricted access because they present a higher risk of deductive disclosure due to data detail. For graduate students especially, applying for use of restricted-data can be difficult because they do not always have a private office where they can store and use the data. 

If you are interested in using this room, please see our access policy or contact Jennifer Darragh for more information.
