Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research is the world's largest collection of digital social science data which can be used for secondary research, instructional activities, and to write articles, papers or theses.

Connect to the database by going to the Databases tab on the search box on the library website and searching for ICPSR

First-time users will be asked to create an ICPSR MyData account which must be done from an on-campus computer. Once the account is created, access is from anywhere. The account remains active for 6 months, after which time it must be reactivated from an on-campus computer.


If you have questions about using the data in ICPSR, please contact Dr. Corey Colyer -

If you need help with the database (searching, account set-up, etc.), contact Penny Pugh -
