The new website is the College Database. I’d recommend making the College Database available to your patrons via your library’s website:

 

 

 

If you have any questions about the website, data partnerships, or features, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly.

The College Database

 

—————

 

The data sources and partnerships used to create The College Database include:

 

  • NCES (http://nces.ed.gov/) is the primary federal entity for collecting and analyzing data related to education. It provides consistent, reliable, complete, and accurate indicators of education status and trends.

 

  • IPEDS (http://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/) is the primary federal source for data on U.S. colleges, universities, and technical and vocational post-secondary schools.

 

  • Carnegie Classification (http://classifications.carnegiefoundation.org/) is a framework widely used in the study of higher education, both as a way to represent and control for institutional differences, and also in the design of research studies to ensure adequate representation of sampled institutions, students, or faculty.
