Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the NDSA coordinating committee and interest group chairs, I
am happy to announce NDSA's support of *Endangered Data Week *and invite
you to participate in next week's awareness activities.

*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.

Join us for an open call
of the NDSA’s Standards and Practices working group on April 17, 1 PM ET!

( And browse for online events and opportunities near you: )

*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 <>.
