How can Kate help you?
Need help finding or managing research data? Want economic information? Kate can help you with both.
Kate enables researchers to locate and utilize numeric datasets, statistics, and other information in the social sciences. As a member of the Libraries' Research Data Management Working Group, she also can advise you on managing research data that you collect to ensure its current usability and long-run preservation and access. Whether you are in economics, other social sciences, or any discipline, Kate can help you to be more efficient and focus on your research.
Kate has worked in the Libraries since 2001 and is involved in international programs to foster the use of research data. She is also the MIT representative to ICPSR (the world's largest archive of social science research data), the Harvard-MIT Data Center, and the DDI Alliance (the metadata standard for numeric data in the social sciences).
