Accounts and Off-Campus Access

You may use ICPSR without creating a personal account.

Some functions, such as downloading and uploading data, require you to create an account. You may log in with your Facebook or Google account. However, Facebook and Google accounts cannot be used with EZproxy. If you've set up an ICPSR account using Facebook or Google, and wish to access ICPSR from off campus, use this link to bypass the EZproxy login.
