Love Your Data 2017: Day 2


14 February 2017

Love Your Data 14 FebThroughout 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 2 is: Documenting, describing, defining.

Good documentation tells people they can trust your data by enabling validation, replication, and reuse.
