DataRescue Princeton (#DataRescuePton) is an opportunity for Princeton University faculty, staff, and students to identify, back-up, and help preserve publicly-accessible climate and environmental data resources. The goal of the event is to answer growing concern in the research community about the survival and accessibility of federal government data banks of environmental and climate data by ensuring that important data be permanently findable, accessible, and usable, and by raising awareness of the importance of data in our communities.
Researchers, programmers, librarians, science enthusiasts and volunteers of all kinds and skills are welcome to join us for this event on Friday, May 19th, from 10 AM to 4 PM (Multi-purpose Rooms, Frist Campus Center). Training will be provided.
Register by Sunday, May 14th.
