Welcome to the School of Data Science's library dashboard. The dashboard provides quick links to the resources you need to succeed in your course. Whether you are online or on-Grounds, UVA Library services and support are available to all students.
Your Librarian is Jennifer Huck.
Each school/department at UVA is assigned a research librarian. Connect with Jenn for help with your assignments. This service is available to all Data Science students, and meeting with a librarian early in your research process can help you save time and get a better grade.
Jenn can help you find articles and books, find data to analyze, and organize your sources. Jenn can meet with you in-person or online via Zoom.
Academic databases contain peer-reviewed articles, scientific papers, reports, and more. These are the most used databases for data science research.
Are you doing research with a policy emphasis or an applied outcome? Consider reviewing reports and policy briefs from think tanks, research centers, advocacy groups, intergovernmental organizations, and nongovernmental organizations. These databases make it really easy to find reports - far easier than looking for them with a regular Google search.
