The UBC Data Services: a (very) brief overview

Data Services (then called Data Library) was established as a branch library in 1972 in a unique collaboration between the UBC Library and the then Computing Centre. It was located in the Computing Centre and was jointly administered by the Library and University Computing Services until July 1992. Then the UBC Library assumed full responsibility for the Data Library, and it moved to the Main Library.

In January 1997, the Data Library moved to the Walter C. Koerner Library, and became officially part of the Humanities and Social Science Division. It is currently known as 'Data Services'.

We serve primarily researchers in the social sciences, and in commerce and business administration. Data files contain complex research materials and, if you've never used numeric data before, expect a steep learning curve! But remember that we're here to help you.
