Love Data is an international celebration and awareness campaign designed to build community and understanding around research data. This year's theme is “My Kind of Data”, which focuses on data equity, inclusion, and creating a kinder world through data. RIT Libraries is excited to be celebrating Love Data 2024! Please join us for the event below.

What do data and archives have in common? (Answer: Everything!) Join the RIT Archives staff for a presentation about what archives collect and why. Then, learn about how student-run organizations on campus can ensure that their shared history is preserved and made accessible for years to come. RIT Archives will suggest resources, tools, and best practices for managing your historical records and the data that lies within.

Speaker: Julia Novakovic
