The Mount Holyoke campus has long served as a field station for student and faculty research. As a component of the living lab, the campus research center stores data on a rich array of environmental phenomena.
Using the Institutional Data Archive (IDA), those affiliated with Mount Holyoke or the general public may access both faculty and student research data, reports and other materials, including a collection of historical and contemporary campus maps.
In particular, students may view, download and use data collected from more than two dozen courses and many more independent student projects and then conveniently upload and store their own research, thus contributing to this vast body of knowledge for future student endeavors.
On IDA, the data collected in the campus living lab are split into three sub-communities:, Environmental Monitoring, Sustainability and Environmental History.
