The EQB or Social Sciences Multilingual Question Bank will be based on the DDI-Lifecycle metadata standard. A close collaboration with the CESSDA Metadata Office project will be undertaken and the Open Source Metadata Harvester tool will be further developed for this project. CESSDA Service Providers will contribute documentation from their holdings. Standardised metadata and EQB will be integrated into the CESSDA portal.
In 2019 the model and UI that has already been developed in 2018 will be further developed, in order to enable a stable and user-friendly search service for all CESSDA survey questions on the web. 2019 will focus on bringing more content into EQB. It will also facilitate an integration of repository harvesters to include more formats for current EQB project members.
