The University Library is soliciting applications for its Data Purchase Pilot Program from faculty and graduate students who need to acquire numeric or spatial data for their research. Please see the full announcement at: http://www.library.illinois.edu/datagis/purchase/description.html
The deadline for applications is October 15.
Karen Hogenboom, Numeric and Spatial Data Librarian, will gladly answer questions about the program (firstname.lastname@example.org). In addition to furthering data-dependent research projects, this pilot will help librarians to understand your needs for purchased or licensed data sets, so they can plan to address them.
