Registration is now open for Love Data Week, February 12-16, 2024! Join Johns Hopkins Libraries for an exciting week-long series of online talks, panels, and workshops where we will discuss data creation, sharing, and management while emphasizing data equity and inclusion and creating a kinder world through data.

For the fourth year in a row, the Libraries are hosting Love Data Week, an international celebration of data. This year, we are honored to be partnering with The Institute for Data-Intensive Engineering and Sciences (IDIES), Stavros Niarchos Foundation SNF Agora Institute, and The Alexander Grass Humanities Institute (AGHI) to bring you an exciting week of data-centric events for all participants of all backgrounds and experience levels. Events run from February 12th through February 16th, and the theme is My Kind of Data.

All events are online and free, and most are open to the public. Non-public events are open to any Hopkins affiliate with a valid JHED. Please feel free to share event information with any of your colleagues and patrons who you think would be interested!
