Although the Map & Data Library is physically closed, we are still available remotely and happy to help. We can conduct consultations using online teleconferencing software. Please feel free to contact us at or use our help form. We have a number of tutorials available, are still supplying software licenses, and have compiled a list of resources for working with COVID-19 data.

Please note that our computer lab is also accessible for use through remote access. See this link for more information.

COVID-19: Updates on library services and operations

Canadian Gallup polls

The Canadian Institute of Public Opinion (CIPO) conducted public opinion surveys for Gallup Canada, Inc. from May 1945-2000. They were conducted periodically (usually once per month) through telephone interviews (originally through face-to-face interviews) of a modified probability sample of adult Canadians.

Carleton University Data Services holds the bulk of this collection, which they have deposited in the <odesi> data portal for academic use. External users without access to <odesi> should contact Carleton directly:
