Data in Everyday Life: Citizen Science - Love Data Week @ UofA

This year's Love Data Week theme is data in everyday life.  Love Data Week is an international social media campaign which aims to raise awareness and build a community to engage on topics related to research data management.

We invite you to join us on Friday February 15 from 10:30a to 12p, Main Library room 112A to hear what citizen science projects your colleagues on campus and in the community are working on! 

"Data creation, gathering, and use continues to explode and transform how we move through and experience the world. This impact is felt by citizens, professionals, researchers, students, citizen scientists…basically anyone who lives part of their lives in the online environment or carries a mobile device."

Follow #lovedata19 on Twitter for more what others around the world are saying about Love Data Week.
