UC Libraries and our partners are collaborating on another UC-wide “Love Data Week” from February 12-16, 2024. Now in its fourth year, UC Love Data Week brings together students, faculty, and staff from across the UC system to explore data tools, methodologies, and platforms from a variety of academic disciplines. With sessions designed to foster knowledge sharing and skill development, the event promises to empower attendees with valuable insights, tools, and strategies to navigate the intricate world of data. All events are free to attend and open to any member of the UC community.
