This year's IASSIST conference, "Data Futures: Building on 30 Years of Advocacy," examines new issues and trends and links them to principles in data management and service during the past thirty years. Social science data producers, users, and support specialists have long understood and promoted responsibility for preservation, quality, stewardship, responsible use, and statistical and data literacy. Juxtaposed against these principles are pervasive and innovative national and international trends in data availability, access, and usage. New frontiers include the globalization of data and its commodification; integration of multimedia in research; and common concerns across nations and disciplines that confidentiality is an issue that requires constant attention.
