Social Science Data Archive now available


Green Library's Social Science Data and Software (SSDS) unit has released a new web site for Stanford researchers to archive and distribute their data. The site is especially aimed at faculty, staff, or students whose grant foundations require that they archive and make their research data available for others to use. But the archive is available to any users who would like to deposit their data, which will be preserved for posterity in the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR). So if you've got data just sitting on your hard drive, take a look at the new SSDS Data Archive site both to preserve them and to share them with others.
