The resources on this page are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what's available for materials to use for performing original data analysis - if you're not finding what you want or want to have a conversation about your specific data needs, email Mandy for an appointment - she's eager to help! :-)
Here are some places to look for existing, secondary qualitative datasets.
News sites often allow free access to a few articles...and then they want your $$.
But the library has access to many news sources that are 'free' to you - well, you've already paid for them with your tuition, but it feels like it's 'free' in the moment. And the advantage of using library-subscribed news sources versus stuff you find on the open web or on twitter or facebook is that you can be pretty confident that they aren't "fake" news.
BELOW are links to library-subscribed news sources.
The library has several online digital collections containing manuscripts, photographs, periodicals, newspapers, oral histories, sound recordings, maps, and printed materials that span topics from LGBTQ activism to popular music to labor rights to urban Atlanta studies - all online and just waiting for you to analyze them. Take a look! :-)
