Service description

The Data Cookbook is a central database that stores PSU administrative system data definitions and report specifications. Although many of the terms and reports defined relate to DataMASTER and Banner, other systems can be incorporated. The Data Cookbook is a collaborative effort between OIT and the campus Data Stewards Committee, a group dedicated to creating a single version of the truth for PSU data and reporting through data governance.
