ACROSS THE DECADES – 40 YEARS OF DATA ARCHIVING

Cover of UK Data Archive 40th Anniversary booklet

In 2007 the UK Data Archive celebrated 40 years of data archiving with a series of events, a publication and a website chronicling the changes over the years

The booklet and the web pages include:

  • an introduction by Ian Diamond, past Chief Executive of the ESRC
  • descriptions of the origins of the Archive
  • the social science environment across the years
  • profiles of people who worked at the Archive
  • processing and preservation activities with details of media used over the years

The journey concludes with a forward look by Kevin Schürer, then Director of the Archive.
