The week of February 13–17, 2017, is Love Your Data (LYD) week, a social media event designed to raise awareness about research data management, sharing, and preservation. This year’s theme is emphasizing data quality for researchers at any stage in their career. Each day of the week will focus on a different topic:
|Monday||Defining Data Quality: Define data quality, and the criteria for good (and bad) data.|
|Tuesday||Documenting, Describing, Defining: Data documentation as a way to improve and manage data quality.|
|Wednesday||Good Data Examples: Define and share examples of producing good and good enough data.|
|Thursday||Finding the Right Data: Explain and share examples of finding and using good data.|
|Friday||Rescuing Unloved Data: Describe techniques of caring for legacy data and existing data rescue initiatives.|
Practical tips, resources, and stories will be shared via Twitter (#LYD17 or #loveyourdata) by librarians, data specialists, and researchers from all over the world. Join the conversation with your Pitt Librarians by following us at:
