Data Sets Available Only Through Purchase
Faculty and graduate students,
If you find the data set you want is not available for free, you have a few options.
First, you will need to evaluate two things:
- How expensive is the data you want? and
- Is it likely to be of use to other campus researchers besides yourself? Can you get others (especially faculty) to voice their interest, too?
With that information in hand, you're better prepared to investigate if funding is available to purchase your data.
