NDSA and ASIS&T to Host Expert Panel for Endangered Data Week

February 26, 2018

Announcing Endangered Data Week at Wayne State University!

Endangered Data Week is the information community’s response to the federal government’s attempt to dismantle public data by way of awareness and advocacy for of open data for all.

Inspired by events like Banned Books Week and Open Access Week, the leaders of Endangered Data Week hope to “...raise awareness of different types of threats to publicly available data; engage with the power dynamics involved in data creation, sharing, and retention; foster concrete skills and collaborative projects; and highlight work to make endangered data more secure and accessible.”

This year, the Wayne State University National Digital Stewardship Alliance (NDSA) & Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T) will be hosting a panel discussion for Endangered Data Week in room 315 at the Purdy Kresge Library on Saturday March, 3rd at 2:00 PM ET. 

Everyone is welcome to attend in-person or online! RSVP today at go.wayne.edu/endangereddata2018
