Happening over the week of February 13-17, Love Data Week is a collection of workshops and networking opportunities focused on data access, analysis, discovery, management, sharing, and preservation sponsored by Cornell University Library and the Research Data Management Service Group in celebration of International Love Data Week.
Campus Tabling Tour: times and locations
The theme this year is Data: Agent of Change. Love Data Week is about inspiring your community to use data to bring about changes that matter. Policy change, environmental change, social change... we can move mountains with the right data guiding our decisions. This year, we are focused on helping new and seasoned data users find data training and other resources that can help move the needle on the issues they care about.

Douglass Day 2023, 12:00-3:00 (drop in any time), Olin Library 107 and Online
Douglass Day is an international event for creating and preserving Black history in honor of Frederick Douglass. This year, Cornell University Library will celebrate with a transcribe-a-thon of the records of Mary Ann Shadd Cary (1823-1893), one of the earliest Black women to edit a newspaper, serve as a Civil War recruiter, attend law school and more. Together, we will learn about Black abolitionist history and create textual data for the future. Cornell University Library staff will help you get started with transcription -- no previous experience is necessary! Snacks from Rashida Sawyer Bakery will be provided to in-person participants. Douglass Day is sponsored locally by the Digital CoLab at Olin Library in partnership with the John Henrik Clarke Africana Library. Contact email@example.com with questions.

More information and registration.
Publication Ready Tables Through Coding, 3:30-5:00
Replication of results is a core requirement of the scientific method. This session will demonstrate generating tables through code that are publication ready. This is the best way to report results as the output is completely reproducible. This session goes over the code used in a variety of programming languages for creating tables that can be inserted directly into your publications. Familiarity in one of R, Stata, SAS encouraged. Full information and registration.

Publication Ready Tables Through Coding Part 2: Advanced Formatting, 3:30-5:00
Replication of results is a core requirement of the scientific method. This session will demonstrate generating tables through code that are publication ready with proper results and formatting. This is the best way to report results as the output is completely reproducible. Part 2 expands on the first part by focusing on formatting your tables to make them more neat, organized and understandable for the viewer. Familiarity in one of R, Stata, SAS encouraged. Full information and registration.
RDMSG Consultants will be tabling at different campus locations throughout the week, distributing data swag and information as we go. Please come visit us and chat about data. Since the theme this year is Data: Agent of Change, share an example of how you or your community uses data to bring about changes that matter for an opportunity to win your own mug or "I ♥️ data" bag.
