Archiving multi-media and web-based data: issues of representation an sustainability

Presenter 1
Louise Corti
U.K. Data Archives

Increasingly the UK Data Archive is seeing resources and potential deposits being created that move beyond raw data. For social scientists this is a relatively new phenomena, although the arts and humanities have been creating such resources for some time.  Researchers and teachers are creating value-added resources to accompany data that are not just hard publications. They include web sites, interactive front-ends to data and user guides and opportunities to comment on or annotate data. This provides a new challenge for us as social science data archivists.  Recent work on the representation of social science research utilising hypermedia and research participants input is highlighting some innovative ways of publishing and disseminating research outputs.  But what should be archived and how? This paper will address some of the key issues that archives might consider.
