Data in Everyday Life: Citizen Science

Love Data Week 2019

This year’s Love Data Week theme is Data in Everyday Life. Love Data Week 2019 is an international event to raise awareness about research data management, sharing, and preservation to help people take better care of their data. Librarians, data managers, and archivists all over the world will be using social media to share data stories and experiences, using the hashtag #lovedata19.

Join us for Data in Everyday Life: Citizen Science to learn how people in our community are helping accelerate innovation by becoming involved in collecting data that supports researchers. Hear about a variety of citizen science projects from researchers at the University of Arizona and non-profit organizations! Refreshments will be served.
