Information Research and Analysis (IRA) Lab

The mission of the Department of Information Science’s Information Research and Analysis (IRA) Lab is to foster innovation and advancement in design, analytics, and the execution of high caliber research. The IRA lab strives to bring cutting-edge rigor and insight to the research process and methodologies to the Department of Information Science and to other College of Information (COI) departments.

In addition, the IRA Lab:

  • Develops and maintains an online knowledge base for research and analysis methodology to the broader research community.
  • Supplies COI faculty, staff, and students with remote access to high performance computers and various software tools for performing research.
  • Provides methodological guidance, expertise, and technical support to assist COI faculty, staff, and students to make informed research decisions on collecting, organizing, and analyzing data for research.


The IRA Lab will be closed from December 19th to January 13th for winter break. We will re-open on January 17th during the normal lab hours.

IMPORTANT: We have recently updated our remote workstations to Windows...

The IRA Lab has moved to E-292N.
