Social Science Data Archives: History and Sustainability
With Professor Kristin Eschenfelder and Professor Greg Downey at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I’m studying the history of social science data archives, their approaches to longevity, and their current challenges and evolution of their practice. This work has been funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, History and Foundations of Information Science Special Interest Group of the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIST), University College Dublin seed funds, and the Irish Research Council.
