The Geoffrey R. Weller Library provides current faculty, staff, or students employed by, or studying at, the University of Northern British Columbia access to numerous data files and products. This access is possible due to the library’s participation in various consortium agreements. Always read any license agreement conditions before using data files. If you have any doubts as to whether or not you may legitimately use any data file or product, check with the Data Services Librarian.
Note: Some data products available in the library’s collection, such as the Canadian Census Analyser or CANSIM, allow the extraction of data in various formats. Numeric data files, however, are not useful without accompanying documentation and some knowledge of statistical analysis techniques. Digital documentation will generally be available with the files.
