Love Data Week 2021 ran from 8 – 12 February.
The purpose of Love Data Week is to raise awareness and build a community to engage on topics related to research data management, sharing, preservation, re-use and library-based research data services and to highlight the importance of data and the many uses and applications arising from it. This year the theme was Data: Building a Better Future.
Maynooth University Library 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, especially open data. We also hosted talks from external guest speakers on data related themes. This year the event was fully online and talks were recorded with presenter permission.
