Love Data Week and Endangered Data Week at CWML!

1 February 2018 - 4:39pm by Lindsay Barnett

Join the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library as we celebrate Love Data Week (February 12 - 16) and Endangered Data Week (February 26 - March 2)!

What are these weeks?

Date Weeks provide opportunities for researchers, scholars, data professionals, and the broader community to share stories about the data that shape our lives.  Love Data Week is devoted to data lifecycle management, including sharing, preservation, reuse, and research data services.  Endangered Data Week aims to bring light to data sets that are in danger of being deleted, repressed, mishandled, or lost.

Why are they important?

Data Weeks encourage us to stop and think about the data that we use, manage, and create both professionally and in the course of our everyday lives.  As the foundation of our research, scholarship and practice, we encourage you to consider: Are you giving your data the care it deserves?

Why celebrate with us?

Because we love data too!  We want to hear your stories and learn more about how you engage with data.  We want you to have the knowledge and tools to better manage and maintain your data.

What's happening?

CWML is planning a number of events for both weeks.  These include workshops, informational sessions, tours, and speakers.
