Google has launched a new search tool for open data. 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.
Google welcomes feedback on the new resource: “Dataset Search is still in beta. If you notice an issue with the product or have a recommendation on how we could improve the product, please submit feedback using the button at the top right of the [home] screen. We are working actively to improve this product and our team will be reading all of your feedback.”
