Welcome to the “Data We Love” blog series! In honor of #LoveDataStanford during Love Data Week 2023, we are highlighting five data sets in the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR) that stand out and deserve a shoutout for being especially loveable!
This week is International Love Data Week, a celebration of all things data! This year's theme is "Data: Agent of Change" and is focused on inspiring our community to use data to bring about changes that matter. Policy change, environmental change, social change... we can move mountains with the right data guiding our decisions.
To kick off the celebration, we've assembled 10 positive steps you can take this week to put you on the road to better data for your research. Commit to making one of these changes this week, or go big and start on one every week for the next 10 weeks or every week day for the next 2 weeks!
And, of course, check out all of other great Love Data Week activities!
Calling all Artists! The Stanford Libraries #ColorOurCollection2023 digital coloring book is here. Get creative and put your personal spin on thirteen exemplary images from our collection. Organized by the New York Academy of Medicine, libraries, archives, and cultural institutions from across the world have turned their most compelling images into free downloadable coloring books.
Digital Library Systems and Services (DLSS) has published a new reference resource about the work we produce in digitization services: Digitization Exemplars. This exhibit features an array of examples of each of the kinds of materials that we digitally reformat in our various labs.
