The Relation of Social Science Data Archives to Libraries and Wider Information Networks.
Some of the organizational requirements for the establishment of a network of interlinked information services are discussed in this paper. In particular, the analysis concerns the relation of social science data banks to libraries and related organizations. These problems are approached from the standpoint of a director of a social science data archive at a university and as one who has participated in the activities of the national coordinating organization of social data archives. The paper is divided into three parts: (1) a short description of organizational developments in the archiving of quantitative social science information, (2) a discussion of how local archives could be most efficiently organized and (3) the relation of social data archives to libraries and thus to any wider network of information services.
