Every year around Valentine’s Day, universities and libraries around the world participate in Love Data Week (February 10 - 14, 2020), an effort to raise awareness related to managing, sharing, preserving, and reusing research data. The University Libraries are no exception! This year, you’ll be able to find us tabling at all three of our library locations as well as other buildings on campus all week with cookies, candies, button and zine making, data scavenger hunts, workshops, giveaways, and data valentines to get students and researchers thinking about the importance of loving and caring for their research data.
