The Harvard-MIT Data Center  is the principal distributor of over five hundred online subsettable data sets, sophisticated browsing and searching options, automatic ordering of new data sets from other repositories, and interactive data exploration. Its largest project currently is the creation of a data center (VDC) — a free, open, portable, self-installing data server, using the protocols for communication and searching from their ongoing Digital Libraries Project, and their recently completed Record of American Democracy project (the largest collection of combined census and electoral data set ever created). The VDC project will seamlessly integrate independent virtual data center sites around the world and make data sharing and distribution easy and transparent.
