Five major social science data archives and NARA, with funding from the Library of Congress, have formed a partnership (the Data Preservation Alliance for the Social Sciences, or Data-PASS) to identify and preserve important data from social science studies "at risk" of being lost. Panelists discuss the challenges each archive has faced in identifying, appraising, acquiring, and preserving important digital data resources, as well as how the Partnership operates.
