Love Data Week (LDW) event is to raise awareness and build a community to engage on topics related to research data management, sharing, preservation, reuse, and library-based research data services. Participants will share practical tips, resources, and stories to help researchers at any stage in their career use good data practices. Love Data Week 2019 is scheduled for February 11-15, 2019. (Generally, it takes place the week of Valentine’s Day.)
From the Love Data Week announcement:
Love Data Week is a social media event coordinated by research data specialists, mostly working in academic and research libraries or data archives or centers. We believe research data are the foundation of the scholarly record and crucial for advancing our knowledge of the world around us. If you care about research data, please join us! This event is open to any institution – small, large, research intensive or not, so please feel free to share, adapt, and improve upon it. We encourage individuals, data librarians or otherwise, to participate in the campaign.
