A reminder to one and all that the first annual Endangered Data Week will be held from April 17th-21st this year—that is, in just two weeks!

We’re also welcoming Mozilla Science Lab<>—joining DataRefuge<>, DLF<>, and CLIR<> as sponsoring organizations for the Week.

Still planning your event? Inspiration abounds:


We invite your participation in Endangered Data Week<>, a distributed network of events running from April 17th-21st, 2017:<>/

Endangered Data Week is a new, annual, grassroots effort to:

  *   raise awareness of threats to publicly available data of all kinds, across sectors and disciplines;
  *   provide opportunities to explore the power dynamics of data creation, sharing, privacy, and retention;
  *   build community capacity by teaching ways to make #EndangeredData<> more accessible and secure.

Nothing nearby? Please help make this first EDW a success by planning a gathering and adding it<> to our list and map!

We especially encourage events that promote care for endangered collections by:

  *   publicizing the availability of datasets to diverse communities;
  *   increasing critical engagement with data, including through visualization, analysis, and storytelling;
  *   encouraging activism and advocacy for open data policies;
  *   fostering needed skills through workshops on data curation, documentation and discovery, improved access, and preservation.

Finally, we welcome contributions to our small supplementary collection<> of EDW resources.

Endangered Data Week is facilitated by a dedicated team of volunteers, including Brandon Locke and Jason A. Heppler, supported by the Digital Library Federation<> and in partnership with a new DLF interest group on Records Transparency/Accountability<>, led by Rachel Mattson. Additional supporters include DataRefuge<>, Mozilla Science Lab<> and CLIR<>.
