Love Data Week
The Love Data Week (LDW) is a social media event coordinated by research data specialists, mostly working in academic and research libraries or data archives or centres (discover more on lovedataweek.org). The purpose of the LDW event is to raise awareness and build a community to engage on topics related to research data management, like sharing, preservation, reuse, and library-based research data services.
At the EPFL Library, we embrace the spirit of the LDW, as we believe that research data are at the foundation of the scholarly record, and crucial for advancing our knowledge of the world around us. During the LDW, we will share practical tips, resources, and stories to help researchers at any stage in their career use good data practices.
Research Data Management survey results
At the end of 2017, the EPFL Library launched a survey aimed at evaluating the feasability of data curation/data stewardship services among EPFL researchers. The results give you an overview of the most important needs required by EPFL researchers in terms of research data management.
