CESSDA Resource Directory

The Directory gathers resources which are already available across various institutional websites. Information on relevant documents, training activities, tools, and support services resulting from past and current CESSDA projects and SP activities have been collected, selected, and reviewed specifically for this purpose. The Resource Directory is therefore a curated inventory of these resources. In order to guide the users within the Directory, specific labels, descriptions, and metadata were applied to index and define the resources. The labels and metadata can be used for a more user-friendly search, allowing easy and rapid access to the resources of interest.
