WSU Data Dictionary: What Do You Mean?

As part of the data governance goals of  increasing transparency through standardization and clarification of data definitions across campus, WSU has implemented the use of an institutional data dictionary designed to capture important information about terms widely used across campus. To meet this end, the institution currently uses the iData's Data Cookbook product. 

What is the Data Cookbook?

The Data Cookbook is a collaborative data dictionary and data governance tool for higher education. The primary features of this tool include a searchable data dictionary, an ability to track report specifications and requests, a data governance workflow, an information request work flow, and a built-in collaboration piece. 
You will need valid WSU credentials to access WSU's Data Cookbook. All current WSU employees automatically have view only access to the Data Cookbook. If you need access to edit the data cookbook please email Heather Chapman.
