Data Dictionary

The Data Dictionary (AKA Information Governance Catalog IGC) is an authoritative dictionary of glossary and information assets defined by the UC San Diego Data Governance Committee. It is a tool enabling creation, management, and sharing of vocabulary, business terms and related data attributes within a centralized catalog. The IGC supports the understanding of data asset business definitions and allows users to shop for data by searching for information that is meaningful to their department or area. Users can establish collections of assets and run lineage reports to examine data flow between assets.


Access to the IGC is available to all active UC San Diego employees.

  1. Make sure you are on the Campus VPN.
  2. Log in to the IGC with your Active Directory credentials.
