Accessing Data: Who and How
Current employees may access the data warehouse via a secured login if they have a need to use the data for their current job responsibilities. Warehouse access is granted through the request forms below, and you will need supervisor approval prior to access being granted. Once your request is submitted, you will receive an email notification. The Enterprise Data Solutions (EDS) team will evaluate the request and get back to you with any additional questions and to discuss deadlines.
Submitting a Data Request
If you need data from EDS, please fill out the appropriate request form below. You will receive a confirmation email once you submit your request, and the request will be routed to your supervisor for approval. Once approved, EDS will assign a staff member to your project, determine the security classification and begin processing your request.
The EDS team processes internal data requests for NU system-wide data. If you have a data request for campus specific data, please contact that campus.
Access to Data Systems
Requests for access to data systems will require approval by your campus security administrator.
Data Warehouse Development
If you would like to request data development outside of what is currently available in the warehouse, the EDS team can provide a consultation to help build and integrate data with other campus data resources.
Data Dictionary: Using Common Language
The Data Dictionary is the definitive source for information in the EDS warehouse. It contains the list of tables, the fields within the tables, descriptions of the fields, their data types, and uses. The data dictionary requires a secure login.
