The Social Sciences require the gathering, studying and analysing of large amounts of data. There is a wide variety of software available to handle data, whether quantitative, qualitative or both.
To support social scientists and others who are required to gather and handle data, the SSL has created a Data Area. This provides access to PCs that have specialised and restricted-licence data software installed. Any reader may use these PCs (except the Bloomberg PC for which approval must be obtained from the Data Librarian, and the PC reserved by selecting the Desk with Bloomberg PC via our online bookings page). Click on the links below for information about the available software.
