Love Data Week (LDW) is a nationwide campaign designed to raise awareness and build a community to engage on topics related to research data management, sharing, preservation, reuse, and other research data services.  Students, faculty, researchers, librarians, and data specialists are invited to attend these events to gain hands-on experience, learn about resources, and engage in discussions around data needs throughout the research process.

This year at UC Berkeley, this event is celebrated during the week of February 10-14, 2020, in partnership with the University Library, Research IT, the Information Security Office, D-Lab, and the California Digital Library (CDL).
