Seton Hall University Libraries will be hosting Love Data Week 2020 (#lovedata20) February 10-13 in Walsh Library in South Orange and at the Interprofessional Health Science Library in Nutley. This is the first time events will be held on both campuses. Both campuses are involved this year due to the increase in data support requests at the libraries. Librarians can help you find, manage, analyze, and visualize the data students need for their coursework and for faculty or students to use in research. For more about how University Libraries can help with data, please look at our Data Services Research Guide.
Events will showcase data services and data subscriptions available to the SHU community ranging from Tableau Public, ICPSR (Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research), the R programming language and data management. Additionally, programs such as avoiding predatory journals and managing your online presence are scheduled. All of these tools will help increase data literacy of SHU students faculty and staff. The eRepository, Seton Hall's Institutional Repository, houses e-journals, syllabi repository, faculty profiles and theses and dissertations.
Sebastian Derry, Assistant Dean for Public Services, states "We are looking forward to this 3rd Annual Love Data Week, sponsored by the University Libraries Data Management Committee. This is an opportunity for the library and the SHU community to come together and engage in conversations around data management, data sharing and library-based research support."
"The IHS Library is proud to be involved in Love Data Week. Our intent is to encourage conversations about data management, discovery, and curation, and to showcase the ways that our library can support student and faculty research through our services and subscriptions," say Chris Duffy, Associate Dean & Library Director.
All events are free to attend, so take part in as many as you'd like—but registration is required.
