Celebrate Love Data Week 2022

Seton Hall University Libraries’ Data Services Group is excited to invite the SHU Community to the 5th Annual Love Data Week 2022, 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.

SHU hosted events will take place on February 15th and 16th. View all the upcoming events here. To see a list of other related events that will be occurring all week across the globe, check out the host’s Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) here.

This year’s LDW theme at SHU is “Data is For Everyone,” a look at the people side of data, the shape of data in different disciplines, and the biases of who is and isn’t included in or represented by data. Event topics include data lakes and unstructured data for business intelligence, data ethics, data in finance, and a demonstration of an interactive map of Seton Hall’s collections of donated and archived materials and artifacts.

Of special note is our workshop at the IHS library about the scope of Research Data Services offered by University Libraries, including how to create a data management plan and data storage options with University Libraries. This offering will help students, faculty, and administrators to manage, analyze, and visualize data.

Be sure to follow along with Love Data Week online at #LoveData22

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.
