Maynooth University Library are hosting Love Data Week this week 08-12 February, 2021. The hashtag is #lovedata21.

The purpose of Love Data Week is to raise awareness and build a community to engage on topics related to research data management, sharing, preservation, re-use and library-based research data services and to highlight the importance of data and the many uses and applications arising from it. This year the theme is Data: Building a Better Future.

Maynooth University Library is marking this event with a series of talks and workshops by students and by data specialists from on and off campus all showcasing different aspects of the use and engagement with data across Maynooth University, especially open data.  This year the event will be fully online and talks will be recorded with presenter permission. The programme of events and booking links for each can be found here.

This event is running on zoom and registered participants will be sent the link to join the morning of the event.

Love Data Week is a social media event coordinated by research data specialists, mostly working in academic and research libraries or data archives or centres. We believe research data are the foundation of the scholarly record and crucial for advancing our knowledge of the world around us.

The week starts with an online event which will examine Irish Sea Level Change in the Atlantic Context on 8 February from 14:00 – 15:00.
