Data Library Services will assist users in identifying and accessing data, including: aggregate data, survey data, and spatial data. The purpose of this guide is to provide information about, and access to, a wide variety of data resources. Please feel free to browse, or contact the Data Librarian for assistance. Requests can be dealt with using email where possible, or an appointment can be made to meet where more mediation is required.
