Director takes a council seat at US archive

Article dated: 15-Dec-10

The Archive has always believed that building collaborative relationships with sister organisations around the globe is essential to establish and maintain international standards and build practices based on real-world experience.

This autumn Matthew Woollard, Director of the Archive and ESDS, continued that tradition when he became an Invited International Visitor to the governing council for the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR), based at the University of Michigan. Like the UK Data Archive, the ICPSR maintains a large archive of digital social science data (more than 500,000 files) and supports researchers with a host of educational activities.

The ICPSR council is a governing body of 12 elected members that focuses on all administrative, budgetary and organisational issues.
