It’s Love Your Data Week, an effort coordinated by one of my amazing data librarian peers, Heather Coates. Love your data week celebrates how prevalent and important data is to research while also acknowledging that we need to give our data some love from time to time.
Each day has a theme and I encourage you to check out the resources on the main site and those appearing on Twitter under the #LYD16 hashtag. I’ve also identified some posts and videos I’ve created over the last few years relating to the 5 topics. Do check them out and think about ways to love your data a little more this week!
