Ron's role in the library

I consult at Social Science Data and Software (SSDS) and can help you with your questions about finding data or using software for social science research or instruction.  

I am Stanford's Representative to two Social Science Data Archives, the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) and the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research, and can help you access their collections and resources.  

I can assist you in preparing your research proposal's Data Management Plan (DMP) and can work with you to share your data with other researchers ( or preserve it for the long-term. 

From March, 2015-present, I am also serving as the interim selector for Economics.
