Data Archiving and Networked Services (DANS) and CentERdata are working together within Survey Data Netherlands (SDN), a service for the dissemination and long-term preservation of survey data in the Netherlands. Both institutes complement each other in the field of data management for survey data. CentERdata has a lot of expertise in data collection, documentation and dissemination of survey data. DANS has extensive knowledge and experience in the field of sustainable long-term archiving. Survey Data Netherlands will have a three-layer architecture with a portal, which can be searched for survey questions and survey data. This portal will harvest a collection of dedicated survey repositories associated with various projects or institutes. In each repository the surveys of a project can be stored, documented and disseminated. For long-term preservation the content of the repositories will be archived at DANS. This presentation will deal with the various aspects involved in this collaboration, technical as well as organizational. Issues such as the semi-automatic exchange of data and metadata between the different survey repositories and the DANS Electronic Archiving System, the use of Persistent Identifiers, and the one-stop principle of Survey Data Netherlands for users of this infrastructure will be discussed.
