On the 1st of February, DANS launched its new on-line archiving system: EASY. What distinguishes this system from other archiving systems is the possibility for researchers to deposit datasets themselves, to customize the presentation of the dataset in the system and to control who will get access to the datasets. This presentation will present the results of the systems usage evaluation which has taken place in June of 2006, from which we can draw conclusions on the feasibility of having researchers depositing and archiving data themselves. Moreover, it will go into the numerous ways in which this web-application can be modified and customized without having to change the original programs source files, making it relatively simple to implement for organizations with very specific archiving system requirements.
