Please Join Us at the ICPSR Biennial Meeting

Seton Hall University libraries is a part of The Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR), an organization of members from various institutions that work together to: acquire and preserve social science data, to provide open and equitable access to these data, and to promote effective data use. This year ICPSR will be hosting their Biennial Meeting, a fully virtual event, open to the public, and free.

The event will take place from October 6-8, 2021, with presentations happening between 10 am ET and 5pm ET. We strongly suggest that our students, faulty, and staff attend. You can register here.

This year’s meeting is themed “Data Positivity: Data Doing Good” and will focus on ICPSR’s mission to further advance the discipline of science through training and information-sharing in the areas of data curation and data management, research and classroom data resources, and data education opportunities to help data-driven individuals “do good” by using the best and latest quantitative methods. 

**Please note: Samah Alshrief, Data Coordinator for University Libraries, will be presenting on Wednesday, Oct 6 at 1 pm EST about Data Ethics and how to manage missing data.
