University Library Erasmus Data Service Centre

Due to the increasing importance of quantitative research the University Library in collaboration with the Schools of Management (RSM) and Economics (ESE) started up the Erasmus Data Service Centre (EDSC) in 2006. At first the emphasis was on financial data but since the summer of 2007, the work terrain of the EDSC has been expanded to cover social sciences data. This has been achieved in collaboration with the Faculty of Social Sciences (FSW).

The EDSC provides access to financial and social science databases and gives individual support and workshops for students and staff of the Erasmus University Rotterdam.

For this work the EDSC has a team of 5 specialists - the Datateam. The Datateam is itself supported by an advisory body made up of representatives from the faculties concerned and the University Library.
