Data Catalog

Also known as
Also known as: 
  • Data Core Data Catalog

The Data Catalog is an internal catalog of research datasets available to members of the WCM community. The catalog does not contain the datasets, but rather contains descriptions and metadata of each dataset. The catalog allows researchers to make their own datasets discoverable to others at WCM, and allows researchers to identify biomedical or health data that are not readily accessible elsewhere.

The catalog provides the ability to search for datasets based on their title, description, data elements, keywords, or data governance.

Researchers can also submit new datasets for display in the catalog. After new submissions have been reviewed by the curatorial team, they are then made available for discovery in the catalog.

What's Included

  • Descriptions of dataset purpose and content
  • Time period the dataset covers
  • The source of the data
  • Who published the data
  • Who from WCM can be contacted for more information
  • Data governance and access restrictions for a dataset

Cost and Fees

The Data Catalog is available to all WCM faculty, staff, and students at no additional charge.
