Directory of Resources for Researchers

Online searchable database for cores and shared resources

The Directory of Resources for Researchers website now includes listings for 92 cores and shared facilities and details for more than 800 resources and services. More than 4,000 unique users have visited the site since its launch in June 2017, with 30 – 300 users per typical weekday. Top destinations during fall semester (Sept – Dec 2017) included the UWCCC Flow Cytometry Laboratory, the Small Molecule Screening Facility, and the Social Science Computing Cooperative. Remember to periodically review the accuracy of listings and consider adding resources and services to improve search results.
