Irish Qualitative Data Archive
The Irish Qualitative Data Archive (IQDA) is a central access point for qualitative social science data generated in or about Ireland. The archive contains qualitative datasets that include interviews, pictures and other non-numerical material. It also frames the parameters and standards for archiving such data within the Irish research community. The IQDA is building on existing archiving projects being undertaken by NIRSA(National Institute for Regional and Spatial Analysis) at NUIM both relating to photographs (NIRSA photo archive and the Ned Cassidy photo archive, the latter in conjunction the Irish Architectural Archive (IAA) and NUIM library).
