The mission of the National Archive of Data on Arts and Culture is to share research data on arts and culture with researchers as well as those not experienced with statistical packages, such as policymakers, people working for arts and culture organizations, and the general public. Funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, the infrastructure of this data repository within ICPSR is also designed to be accessed through a computer or mobile device. This poster will help attendees to see how ICPSR has designed a repository to increase data access to the arts and culture field, a field not known to have or use research data. Methods to discover and learn about data available to download from NADAC and various techniques to explore the data online will be described. It will also highlight several user-friendly tools for analyzing and visualizing data for this wider spectrum of experienced and novice data users from the community.
