Cancellation Feedback Requested: ICPSR

Cancellation Feedback Requested: ICPSR



The Kraemer Family Library regularly reviews the databases that we subscribe to in support of the research being performed by our students, faculty, and staff. Over time we see changes in usage, cost, and coverage in our databases. Part of our review is to consider whether there has been enough change to warrant cancelling a subscription. Cancellation allows us to re-allocate funding to better support current research agendas and course assignments.

Before making any final decisions on whether or not a database should be cancelled, we need your feedback. At this time, we are reviewing ICPSR (Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research). Please use this link to provide us with any feedback that helps us understand how you use ICPSR, so that we can make an informed decision. Feedback will be gathered until April 10, 2023.

ICPSR is a data repository and archive for the social and behavioral sciences. Parts of ICPSR are open and freely available, even without a subscription. Anyone can deposit public-use data with them, data in sponsored archives are free to everyone, and all data codebooks are also freely available.
