The goal of the Chicago Studies Resource Portal is to make Chicago-focused scholarship—from BA Theses to quantitative data sets—readily accessible to all. On this portal, and with your help, we hope to curate a wide variety of data pertaining to the history, culture, politics, people, and more of Chicago.

To access the entire scope of our collection, visit the Resource Portal tab. There, you'll find snapshots of data that you can click into for instant access. If you have a specific inquiry or topic of interest, then browse our filtered selections (i.e. Neighborhood, Topic, and Sources). Moving forward, every sub-filter will link to multiple relevant data sets.

If you can't find what you're looking for, feel free to request a resource from us. If you have a resource of your own that you'd like to contribute, don't hesitate to submit it for publication. 


So, what can you do next?
