Georgetown University: ALL DAY

Data Rescue DC

Over the course of two days, datarescueDC will help to seed, sort, harvest, and store valuable and at-risk federal government data in Data Refuge, a project facilitated by the University of Pennsylvania’s Program in Environmental Humanities. Specifically we will be using this workflow model developed at the first DataRescue event in Philadelphia, and which has been further refined at events in Los Angeles, Chicago and Ann Arbor.

Whether you are a researcher who actively uses federal datasets, someone who values the data publishing work the federal government does, a software developer, designer, or writer, we’ve got work for you to do, and would love for you to be involved.

Please note that participants will need to show a valid photo ID to enter the Lauinger Library, but information is not recorded.
