Love Data Week is an international celebration of data, with the goal of raising awareness and building a community to engage on topics such as research data management, sharing, preservation, reuse, dissemination, and library-based research data services.
This year’s events are based loosely on the theme “Data is for everyone.” The hashtag is #LoveData22.
The OU Library are hosting some fun activities and events to commemorate Love Data Week (14-18 February 2022).
