Endangered Data Week

Are you data-curious??? Come out to Endangered Data next week before you head home for Spring Break!!

The UVa Library is hosting a number of events as part of Endangered Data Week 2018 (February 26-March 2), a collaborative effort, coordinated across campuses, nonprofits, libraries, citizen science initiatives, and cultural heritage institutions, (1) to shed light on public datasets that are in danger of being deleted, repressed, mishandled, or lost; (2) to promote public and open data, working toward greater accessibility; and (3) to build a culture of data consciousness, increasing appreciation for and the ability to use data within the larger community.

Research Data Services is available year-round with a variety of data-related services, including discovery and acquisition of datasetsstatistical support and data analytics consultingresearch software support, and consulting on data-related issues, including research data management. We also offer a rich variety of workshops throughout the academic year. We are happy to answer any questions you might have; just send us an email atresearchdataservices@virginia.edu.
