Data Science

A guide to library resources about Data Analytics

Data Science and Resources

  • Data science is an interdisciplinary field that uses scientific methods to extract high-value information or knowledge and insights from available data in various forms, both structured and unstructured (Dhar, 2013; Kalidindi ).
