The Odum Institute for Research in Social Science was founded by Howard W. Odum in 1924. It is the oldest research and service facility of its kind. The Odum Institute has a broad mandate, but a common theme of our work is to provide services to social scientists that they cannot easily obtain from their home departments. Examples of our services include: maintenance of the world's third largest social science data archive, training in software to analyze quantitative and qualitative data, seminars in a variety of social science topics, support in proposal development and grant administration, organization of faculty-student interdisciplinary working groups, research design and analysis consulting, and help with social surveys. The brief tour will cover the Odum Institute's space that includes all of the lower level and part of the main level of Manning Hall. (Ken Bollen)
