Endangered Data Week & Event!

“Endangered Data Week is a collaborative effort coordinated across campuses, nonprofits, libraries, citizen science initiatives, and cultural heritage institutions, to shed light on public datasets that are in danger of being deleted, repressed, mishandled, or lost. The week’s events can promote care for endangered collections by: publicizing the availability of datasets; increasing critical engagement with them, including through visualization and analysis; and by encouraging political activism for open data policies and the fostering of data skills through workshops on curation, documentation and discovery, improved access, and preservation.”

Endangered Data Week focuses on gaining more attention to not only the risk these items face, but also what we can do to best preserve them. Find out more information at their website: https://endangereddataweek.org/

Our student chapter will be hosting a panel on Endangered Data on Saturday, March 2, 2019 at 1:30PM. We will have a number of presenters discussing their work to help preserve data, or discussing what we can do to help this cause. Join us either online or on-campus!
