Data Repository: Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) Announces Beta Release of the New Odesi Search
From an OCUL Post:
We’re excited to announce the release of the new Odesi search in beta!
Odesi is a Canadian data repository provided by academic libraries on behalf of researchers. It contains more than 6,000 curated social and economic datasets, including Canadian surveys and public opinion polls.
The beta release includes new features integrated with Borealis, the Canadian Dataverse Repository, and incorporates the Borealis Data Explorer for data preview, subsetting, visualization, and analysis. Other features such as browsing by topic, file downloading, and citations, make it easier for researchers to find and access Odesi’s data collections.
We encourage you to browse, search, and download from the beta site — and then we want to hear from you!
