Data Resources
Data Services Studio (DSS) – The best resource we’ve found so far. Located on the 5th floor of Bobst library, DSS offers one-on-one consultations with data librarians, dedicated workstations, and software training for all kinds of data research and analysis, including GIS.

Online Data Resources
1.) NYC open data – https://data.cityofnewyork.us/
2.) http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/datablog/interactive/2013/jan/14/all-our-datasets-index?CMP=twt_fd
3.) ICPSR – available through DSS (see above). “Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research.”
4.) Linked Ancient World Data Institute – Not quite launched yet, but could have some interesting leads to data related to Ancient World Studies. Recommended contacts are Tom Elliot (head of the project at NYU), and Chuck Jones (the librarian for NYU’s Institute for the Study of the Ancient World).
5.) Spacial History Project – at Stanford. From their site: “We embrace visualization as a way not simply to illustrate conclusions, but a means of doing research.”
6.) The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database – clean, downloadable data on 35,000 ship voyages.
7.) Center for History and New Media – George Mason University. Good resources for historical data and text-mining tools.
8.) WordSeer – Open-Source text analysis tool being developed at UC Berkeley. Full code available on GitHub.
9.) “Real World Data Sets” – an ecclectic list of data sets for a java class at Princeton. Everything from Dickens to Starbucks.
10.) Open Data Repositories – a wiki that collects links to open data sets in major academic fields including astronomy, biology, chemistry, linguistics and on and on….
