Description:

"Data Planet provides a simple path to relevant data through its recently refreshed user-friendly interface, giving researchers access to the largest single repository of harmonized and structured statistical data available to libraries. The platform provides a range of tools and visualizations to assist in collecting, analyzing, and interpreting statistical data as well as citing, comparing, and downloading data sets from multiple sources. In this session, a guest trainer from Data Planet will provide in-depth instruction on how Data Planet supports researchers at all levels in working with data. The University Libraries will also overview resources for finding and using secondary data from Data Planet and other sources.
