Carleton RDC now open in the MacOdrum Library

We are excited to announce the opening of the Carleton RDC in the MacOdrum Library. This is the 33rd location of Canadian Research Data Centre Network - a partnership between a consortium of Canadian universities and Stats Canada.

These spaces provide university, government, and other approved researchers access to a vast array of social, economic, and health confidential microdata in secure computer facilities across the country.

The Carleton branch of the COOL Research Data Centre is located in MacOdrum Library, Room 121. There are restrictions and protocols in place due to COVID-19, and social distancing will be observed.

The Carleton RDC is open Tuesday to Thursday, 9 am to 4:30 pm. You apply for access through the Microdata Access Portal. For more information, check out the CRDCN webpage. There is also information on requesting access here and a complete list of all available data sets here. If you need more information, contact the RDC analyst at
