The recently founded organization Data Archiving and Networked Services, based in The Hague, the Netherlands, has been given two basic responsibilities: storing datasets resulting from humanities and social sciences research, and improving the data infrastructure for these two fields. From the start it was decided that for DANS to be able to take on these responsibilities, a new approach to data archiving should be developed. This paper outlines this new approach, which is based on a two stage archival process, and will highlight one component of this approach which we nicknamed Easy-Store.
