The CESSDA Data Catalogue is one of the flagship products of CESSDA (Consortium of European Social Science Data Archives). It is a one-stop-shop for research and discovery, enabling access to extensive research data collections held at national Service Providers across Europe.
The catalogue currently provides metadata on about 30,000 datasets in 10 languages. A wide range of data are covered, including quantitative, qualitative and mixed modes, longitudinal and cross-sectional, national and cross-national data.
We have now released an updated version of the catalogue. Join our one-hour webinar to hear what has changed and how the catalogue can be used to find data.
We have invited a content expert from a Service Provider to explain why and how to use the CESSDA Data Catalogue and a researcher to provide a user perspective. There are also brief presentations on other services feeding into the catalogue: CESSDA Vocabulary Service and the ELSST thesaurus discovery platform.
