Data Search Support




Data search support for Maastricht University students and staff members.

Find out more about the availability of data licenced by the library or otherwise, and get support interpreting these data.




In a joint effort with faculty experts and data suppliers, the library supports you in the following ways:

  • Check out the Online Manuals we selected for you or enroll in a classroom training
  • Have your questions answered by the library, or redirected to an expert at the faculty or data supplier
  • Complex questions may result in one-to-one personal instruction sessions of 60 minutes max.
