Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) website
has a new section devoted to Data Management and Curation, which provides a
general guide on research data quality, preservation, access, confidentiality, and
citation, and also explains how ICPSR, as a social science research data
archive, is working hard to address all these issues. There is also a Tools
& Services section compiling recommended applications that could help
researchers deal with data confidentiality, restricted-use data, data
processing, and dissemination.
2014, ACRL/Numeric and Spatial Data Interest Group invited ICPSR’s Director of
Curation Services, Jared Lyle, to offer a webinar for data librarians on the
subject of social science data management and curation. The slides and recording
of the webinar are available for viewing now.
