Similar to Open Access Week, the purpose of Love Data Week is to raise awareness and build a community to engage on topics related to research data management, sharing, preservation, re-use and library-based research data services and to highlight the importance of data and the many uses and applications arising from it.

This year, according to the Love Data Week website the event will focus on working with students to help them get to know the data specialists at their institution, the kinds of work they do, and the data and associated issues that these data specialists engage with. A number of talks, exhibitions and information stands will be held during the week all showcasing different aspects of the use and engagement with data across Maynooth University, especially open data.
