The article is part of a larger study in progress of how one particular example of long-lived archives, Social Science Data Archives (SSDAs), have maintained themselves over time. SSDAs predate both computers and the Internet and provide a unique opportunity to examine perceptions about what makes an archive sustainable, through the ups and downs of funding cycles and massive changes in technical and organizational infrastructure.||Funding Details:||Irish Research Council||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Taylor and Francis||Copyright (published version):||2015 the Authors||Keywords:||Social science data archives;Sustainability;Business models;Organizational theory||DOI:||10.1080/13614576.2015.1111699||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
