Have you followed up on news from the LoveYourData International Week, 13-17 February 2017? Similar to Open Access Week, the purpose of the Love Your Data (LYD) campaign is to raise awareness and build a community to engage on topics related to Research Data Management (RDM), sharing, preservation, reuse, and library-based research data services.


"We love your data, and we want to help encourage its use developing programs and policies that improve population health, well-being, and equity", - LoveYourData 2017 blog

Data are essential building blocks of scholarship and research.

“The production of data is expanding at an astonishing rate: experts now point to an 4300% increase in annual data generation by 2020” (LEARN project: Goals, Impact And Expected Results).
