Google Dataset Search (beta) now live

Google launched a new search tool for open data on 5 September. Google Dataset Search (beta) helps find open datasets and data series – by searching data repositories worldwide. The new resource searches both open public data repositories (governments; international organisations) and open research data repositories (universities, research institutions). Full details of the new search tool are in the Google Blog and this video. Dataset Search is developed by Google’s AI research division. For access to licensed, statistical datasets at the EUI, visit the Library’s Data Portal.
