It’s Love Your Data Week

February 11, 2019

This week is Love Your Data (LYD) Week, an international event coordinated by academic libraries and data archives with a theme this year of “data in everyday life.”

One focus for LYD Week 2019 is “open data.” LYD wants to help promote research data as being “the foundation of the scholarly record and crucial for advancing our knowledge of the world around us,” says NCAR Data Curation & Stewardship Coordinator Sophie Hou. Along those lines, Hou is highlighting the resources and services that the Digital Asset Services Hub (DASH) provides. The concept of data justice is another focus of the 2019 LYD event.
