Love Your Data 2017: Day 1


20 June 2017

Love Your Data week graphicThroughout this week, ANDS is celebrating international Love Your Data Week 2017 (13-18 Feb).

Love Your Data (LYD) is a campaign to raise awareness and build a community to engage on topics related to research data management, sharing, preservation, reuse, and library-based research data services.

The theme for Day 1 is Defining Data Quality.

Data quality is the degree to which data meets the purposes and requirements of its use. Depending on the uses, good quality data may refer to complete, accurate, credible, consistent or “good enough” data.
