Presenter 1
Mari Kleemola
Finnish Social Science Data Archive

This paper will provide an overview of the new CESSDA portal. Since the 1970s a major aim of the Council of Social Science Data Archives (CESSDA) has been to improve researchers' and students' access to data. The long-awaited new portal is an important step towards that goal, providing a gateway to data materials and information about CESSDA. It enables users to locate datasets, questions and variables in datasets from all over Europe. This presentation will also describe the challenges of developing a website for multiple distributed organizations from varying cultures.
