What is it?

Similar to Open Access Week, the purpose of the 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. We will share practical tips, resources, and stories to help researchers at any stage in their career use good data practices.

LYD 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.

We are currently migrating content from our old site, so bear with us during this transition!

Where is it?

The event will take place mainly online, although some institutions may choose to have in-person events (for more details contact the local site coordinator of a participating institution).

How can I get involved?

Interested in joining the Planning Committee? If not, we’ll be posting more information about how you can engage online, plan or join a local event later this fall.
