Data Sources

Libra Data (Local UVA Dataverse Instance) 

Many research projects share their data in disciplinary or institutional repositories. Datasets and other final, publishable products of research born at UVA may be submitted to Libra Data in order to preserve them and make them accessible worldwide. In addition to sharing your own collections this way, you can search this and other existing repositories for relevant secondary data.  Learn more about Libra Data.

Licensed Data

The UVA Library manages a collection of datasets and licensed data for academic research and teaching purposes, including:
