Staff and Services

To Access Social Science Data Reference Resources:

UGA students, faculty, and staff may access our data resources in the Digital Humanities on the 3rd floor of the Main Library.

The principal resources available in the DigiLab are:

 - SAS software (open to any UGA affiliate with a valid UGA ID card required to get into the DigiLab)

 - Refinitiv Datastream (which also requires that the user has already self-registered for their personal Refinitiv Workspace login credentials and has been assigned a Datastream 'license' by John Prechtel,

Please note that the DigiLab does not provide support for these resources and that the two Windows workstations where the resources are installed are available on a first come first served basis.  Users who require assistance with Datastream can contact John Prechtel for help,

For out-of-town visitors, please refer to the UGA Campus Maps for directions to the Main Library (building 0054).
