Join Us for Love Your Data Week

The University of Illinois Research Data Service and the Scholarly Commons will be participating in Love Your Data week Feb. 8-12, 2016, a nationwide event designed to raise awareness about research data management, sharing, and preservation, along with the support and resources available at our university. We believe research data are the foundation of the scholarly record and crucial for advancing our knowledge of the world around us. If you care about research data, please join us!

Each day will have a theme driving the event, with opportunities to complete hands-on activities that will guide your efforts to keep your data safe, findable, understandable, citable, and reusable.

Follow @ILresearchdata on Twitter where the Research Data Service will be tweeting daily research data management tips, examples, and resources, as well as connecting you with experts on our campus and in your discipline. Track #LYD16 on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to tune into the national Love Your Data week campaign and join the conversation about research data management by sharing your own experiences and results from the daily activities.

Visit the Love Your Data website to learn more about the event and check out the topics we will be exploring each day.
