Love Data Week 14-18 February 2022 - Recordings

View Programme

Maynooth University Library hosted Love Data Week during the week of 14-18 February, 2022. The hashtag is #lovedata22. Similar to Open Access Week, the purpose of Love Data Week is to raise awareness and build a community to engage on topics related to research data management, open data, citizen science and many others and to encourage sharing, preservation, and re-use of data. Love Data Week highlights the importance of data and the many uses and applications arising from it. This year the theme is Data For Everyone.

Maynooth University Library is marked this event with a series of talks and workshops by students and by data specialists from on and off campus all showcasing different aspects of the use and engagement with data across Maynooth University and elsewhere, especially open data. This year the event was fully online and talks have been recorded with presenter permission. The programme of events can be found HERE. There are also two SWAY exhibitions on Data for Everyone – Data Books and Clericus: From analogue to digital, which is also available through the programe or below.

Love Data Week is a social media event coordinated by research data specialists, mostly but not exclusively working in academic and research libraries or data archives or centres. We believe research data are the foundation of the scholarly record and crucial for advancing our knowledge of the world around us.
