Abstract: How do financial strategies, and changes to financial strategies over time, contribute to the organizational resiliency of data archives? We explore the challenges, crisis and opportunities faced by data archives over 40 years and the financial strategies they have employed to deal with challenges and opportunities. This paper describes how two well-known social science data archives, ICPSR and the UK Data Archive (UKDA), adopted and adapted their financial structures over a 40 year period in order to remain sustainable.
