This guide provides resources related to data science.
The guide is designed primarily for undergraduate students majoring or minoring in Data Science. However, anyone interested in aspects of data science - from working with Python and R, to finding and cleaning data, to visualizing results - may find it useful.
Just as data science is ever changing, this guide will be updated regularly to reflect new tools, packages, tutorials, and data science examples. If you think anything important is missing from this guide, please email the Data Science Librarian.
If you are located on-campus, make sure that you are connected to the UCSD-Protected wifi.
If you are located off-campus, start by setting up VPN AnyConnect on your device.
UC Library Search, accessible from the search box on the library's homepage, helps you locate books, film, music, maps, and various other materials at the UC San Diego Library and beyond. It also contains a limited number of online journals and newspaper articles. You may search by keyword, title, and author, and filter your search to what is available online. You can also place an interlibrary loan request through UC Library Search for materials at other UC campuses or libraries worldwide using your Single Sign-On credentials.
UC Library Search does not include all the content to which the Library subscribes. To extend your search, try a database. The database you use depends on the topic or subject you have chosen and the type of information you need to access. You may choose among broad subject areas (e.g., biology, art, political science, etc.), as well as interdisciplinary databases or ones that search across multiple disciplines.
You must also be logged into the VPN to access the information for any database with a blue lock icon.
