MORE ON ICPSR

ICPSR Logo

Wellesley is a member of the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR). ICPSR maintains and provides access to an archive of social science data.

ICPSR data can only be downloaded if you are on campus. Most data can be downloaded directly from any campus computer, although some data is only available via CD-ROM. CD-ROMs are in the Wellesley College Library catalog; search by study title. If we do not have the CD-ROM, contact Carolin Ferwerda to request the data.

The Online Learning Center provides instructional datasets, as well as exercises for classroom use, information about useful Web sites, and related publications.

For more information about ICPSR, contact Carolin Ferwerda, Official Representative to ICPSR.
