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 mdl@library.utoronto.ca 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.

Industrial research and development information system (IRIS)

This database holds all of the statistics produced by the National Science Foundation's Survey of Industry Research and Development (SIRD) for 1953 to 2007, the last year SIRD was conducted - it has been replaced by the Business Research and Development and Innovation Survey (BRDIS). This searchable database contains tabulated statistics for selected periods on such measures as industry R&D funding and industry R&D personnel. These statistics are broken out by such dimensions as source, industrial sector, character of work, and company size.
