Abstract
Colectica is a software suite for managing statistical data and survey descriptions. It is based on the DDI Lifecycle metadata standard and provides tools for designing surveys, documenting data, and describing studies. Colectica can import metadata from existing sources and publish documentation on the Web and in other formats. The new Colectica 5 integrates feedback from national statistics institutes, university archives, and commercial data collection organizations. This session will highlight the new functionality available in Colectica 5, including: DDI 3.2, deep integration with data collection systems, new ways to explore and discover data on the Web, and a translatable user interface.
