Love Data Week Workshops, February 13th through 17th, #LoveData23

Love Data Week kicks off February 13 and runs through February 17, 2023.

Celebrate International Love Data Week with the Digital Scholarship Center (DiSC)! We will be hosting an in-person open house on Thursday, February 16th in room 2701 Fenwick Library. Throughout the week we will be offering series of short, 30-minute data workshops (virtual) at noon. Use the links below for more details and to register.

The theme this year is Data: Agent of Change — using data to bring about changes that matter. Policy change, environmental change, social change… we can move mountains with the right data guiding our decisions. This year, we are focused on helping new and seasoned data users find data and other resources that can help move the needle on the issues they care about. #LoveData23

Libraries celebrates Love Data Week 2022

Data is for everyone! Wait … data are for everyone? Either way, Love Data Week 2022 (February 14-18) is about how different folks use data.

Love Data Week is sponsored by the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR). This year’s theme focuses on the people side of data and asks questions like “What does data look like in different disciplines?” and “How about biases in data… who is ‘in’ the data and who is invisible?” Follow the activities on social media using #LoveData22.

In celebration of Love Data Week, the Libraries’ Digital Scholarship Center (DiSC) will be offering three short 30-minute workshops focusing on data tools. You can learn more and register at the links below.
