Great place to look for data sets on specific topics

In addition to the links on this page, Princeton University Library's Data & Statistical Services librarians have created a Data Catalog for identifying data sets on specific topics. As the links on the site are via Princeton’s servers some of their subscirption links will not work for us at UNM, but iif you identify a useful data set that is not freely available, check if UNM might have access by contacting me, Liz Cooper (cooperliz@unm.edu) for assistance.
