Specialist resources

Data Library

The Data Library contains a wide range of data and statistics from across the globe. In some cases data is only available from specific machines in the Library. 

Although there are no specific data sources recommended for statistics, the Moodle course, Library Companion for Data Users, provides a good introduction to data resources and will help you locate material. 

Online and offline data provided by the Data Library can only be used by current LSE staff and students in pursuit of LSE related academic research.

The Data Library team is also available to assist with any queries you may have about finding data or using individual resources. 

Current research 

LSE Research Online is a collection of research produced by LSE staff.  It often contains contents which is full text and freely available. Items added to the Library in the last month on Statistics include:

Two major collections of open access repositories around the world are OpenDOAR and OAIster

Conference papers

  • ZETOC - Index to conference papers 1992-present. No full-text, simply tells you where to find the paper concerned, such as in a book or journal.
  • ISI Proceedings on Web of Knowledge - science and technology, 1990-present.  


LSE PhD Theses are indexed on Library Search. Carry out a search and then limit to 'Dissertations, Academic'. 

More recent theses and a selection of older digitised theses are available via LSE Theses Online.

Two heavily used resources for finding doctoral theses are:

  • Proquest Dissertations and Theses - PhD, M.Phil and Masters theses mainly from North America.
  • Index to Theses - UK and Irish PhD and M.Phil theses from 1716 to the present day.  Some records contain links to the full text available via EThOS.
