Love Data Week 2021

Love Data Week 2021

Seton Hall University Libraries’ new Data Services Group, is excited to invite the SHU Community to Love Data Week 2021, to be held virtually February 8th-12th .

Love Data Week (LDW) is an international celebration of data, aiming to raise awareness and build a community to engage on topics related to research data management, sharing, preservation, reuse, and library-based research data services.

Follow ❤ Love Data Week ❤ online at #lovedataweek21

This year’s LDW theme at SHU is “Diversity and Inclusion in Data”. We want to support the SHU community with our data subscriptions (such as ICPSR and PolicyMap) and open source tools to promote finding data related to marginalized communities and BIPOC (black, Indigenous and people of color), and visualizing the information using impartial and fair methods. Programs range from a conversation about Algorithmic Bias and Data Ethics, Using PowerBI to identify diversity in your workplace, and finding thematic and minority data collections in ICPSR (Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research).

All are encouraged to learn about Research Data Services now offered by University Libraries, including how to create a data management plan and data storage options with University Libraries. This new offering will help faculty when applying for grants and teach researchers how to manage, preserve and store data for reuse.

Faculty who are unable to attend these sessions can have them delivered during scheduled class time for their students. Make arrangements through your liaison librarian.

Join a session (or a few!) on Microsoft Teams and get connected.
