After a national search, Maggie Levenstein has been appointed the new director of ICPSR, the largest archive of digital social science data in the world. She begins her 5-year term July 1, 2016, replacing current director George Alter. Of her appointment, Levenstein says: “ICPSR is an important resource for the social and behavioral science community, curating and making accessible data assets that thousands of researchers have created over the last 70-plus years.... The “big data” revolution creates new opportunities and challenges. ICPSR’s role will be to help the research community make the most of those opportunities.”
