Please schedule an appointment through the Research Calendar (look for GIS Only in the staff listing) or stop by the Ask Us Desk to speak with our GIS specialist.

Finding Data

If you need assistance locating data related to a specific topic, have already identified a dataset and need assistance gaining access, or need to schedule an in-class library instruction session on locating and accessing data, please contact the Ask Us Desk. For more information on searching for data or statistics, check out the Data & Statistics Research Guide.

Data Management Plans (DMPTool)

Federal funding agencies and certain foundations may require data management plans as part of the proposal process. Gelman Library can assist you with developing your data management plan using GW’s DMPTool. The DMPTool provides templates and guidance for developing data management plans to meet the requirements of funding agencies. For assistance with using the DMPTool, please contact the Data Services Librarian.

Additional information on data management best practices and resources can be found in the Data Management Research Guide.
