To help students build skills and awareness, University of Toronto Libraries has launched a week-long event to focus on building capacity and raising awareness of data collection, use, and sharing, as well as digital privacy and security.
Based at Gerstein Science Information Centre in partnership with the Map and Data Library and the MADLab, the week long event runs from October 18-21, 2022. Activities include a virtual panel discussion with U of T experts, a series of virtual workshops led by U of T Librarians, and an in-house expo providing hands-on instructions, in-person support, giveaways and more.
