Love Data Week (Feb. 12-16)

Love Data Week is here again! Love Data Week is an international social media campaign to raise awareness and build community to engage on topics related to research data management, sharing, preservation, reuse, and library-based research data services.

This year the theme for Love Data Week is Data Stories, with a focus on four topics:

  • Stories about data
  • Telling stories with data
  • Connected conversations across different data communities
  • We are data: seeing the people behind the data

Since last year, we have some new data stories at Duke Libraries. The Duke Digital Repository now contains nearly 30 data sets that Duke researchers have shared for preservation and reuse. There are 23 Duke-affiliated projects in the Open Science Framework, a free web app developed by the Center for Open Science that facilitates good project and data management practices. And our Research Data Management team has continued to offer consultation and instruction services to a variety of researchers on campus.

We invite you to join the data story by attending data related events coming up at Duke during Love Data Week:

  • Tuesday, February 13:

    Civil and Environmental Engineering Seminar: Data, data everywhere … Making sense of observations and models across scales 
  • Wednesday, February 14:
