Over the last decade, both the variety and amount of data available to social scientists have expanded. These new data sources include administrative records (e.g., voter files, campaign finance and lobbying records), geo-referenced data (e.g., satellite maps, geocoded event data), and texts (e.g., speeches, court rulings, legislative bills). Many of these data sources can be accessed through the Read more about Web Scraping and Text Processing with Python 2015

AskRC goes live!

April 17, 2014

Princeton's Research Computing team has officially launched AskRC (https://askrc.princeton.edu/questions/), a social Q&A site for the Princeton Community (think StackOverflow). To access it you need to log in with your Princeton Credentials. However, once there, you can use your AskRC credentials to ask and answer questions (with and without your username visible to others).

This is now one more source for information beyond the help email address at research computing Read more about AskRC goes live!
