Description:

Do you love your research data? We are participating in Love Your Data week, February 13-17, an international event to raise awareness about research data management, sharing, and preservation at colleges and universities.

Love Your Data week will focus on a different topic each day, accompanied by tips and tricks for managing research data, stories, examples and resources. The campus community can visit our data management website each day to learn about a specific topic. You can also follow the national conversation on social media by using the hashtag #LYD17. The Love Your Data blog will offer additional tips, as well as activities researchers can use to better develop the management of their data.

Celebrate Love Your Data week by attending two workshops on Friday, February 17 in the iSpace (Science-Engineering Library): 

  • Jupyter Notebook
    12:00 p.m.
    Presented by Jeff Oliver (Bioinformationist, Health Sciences Library)
    The Jupyter Notebook provides a means of creating documents containing text, analyses, data visualizations along with the computer code used to produce them all. This workshop will provide an introduction to the interface and how it can be used for interactive code development and a means of sharing documents with others. Participants should bring a web-enabled laptop with a modern browser (Chrome, Firefox, or Safari).
  • Finding the Right Data
    2:00 p.m.
    Presented by Chris Kollen (Data Curation Librarian) and Mary Bell (Post-doctoral Research Associate)
    Looking for data for your research or class assignment? Not sure where to look, how to tell the quality, and what do you need to do to use it? We can help! This workshop will provide you with suggestions on where to find data, how to assess the quality, how to clean up the data and bring it into the relevant software.
