Next week, the University of Washington Libraries will be participating in Love Your Data, a nationwide event designed to raise awareness about research data management, sharing, and preservation, along with the support and resources available at our university. For five days, Feb. 8 - 12, we will share related tips and tricks, stories (both success and horror!), resources, and point you to local experts. In return, we ask that you share your own experiences and results from the daily activities to keep the conversation lively. You can also follow the national conversation on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook via #LYD16.
In the meantime, check our NPR's "Will Future Historians Consider These Days The Digital Dark Ages?" and Raiders of the Lost Web from the Atlantic for a glimpse into the implications of data loss.
