VIDEO TEXT TRANSCRIPT

I'm Melanie Wright. I'm Associate Director, Head of Data and Support Services here at the UK Data Archive.

Since its establishment over 40 years ago, the UK Data Archive has acquired, managed and preserved a vast range of data.

Since 2005 our archive has been a designated place of deposit by The National Archives.

Our collection encompasses a whole range of data about society, both historical and contemporary, covering a broad range of disciplines. We accept data from many sources - from the public sector, such as government departments, to researchers and research institutions - and commercial data.

Sharing your data with the Archive ensures that not only will it be preserved for posterity, but it will be used.

We enhance your data by creating catalogue records and including it in our online catalogues. We manage the licensing and access arrangements for your data and we ensure that the data are promoted among appropriate user groups.

Depositing data is easy. Get in touch with us if you would like to offer us your data.
