Love Your Data – Day 3: Good Data Examples

Good data are FAIR – Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Re-usable
 
What makes data good?
  1. It has to be readable and well enough documented for others (and a future you) to understand.
  2. Data has to be findable to keep it from being lost. Information scientists have started to call such data FAIR — Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Re-usable.

2nd annual library fair for faculty & staff

Come to the Second Annual FIU Library Fair for Faculty & Staff to step up your research and teaching in 2016. It’s time to meet and greet (and eat) at the library!

Speak with your librarian and visit our information stations to learn about the library resources, services, and specialized tools designed to help you with your research, teaching, and tenure and promotion documents. We will have refreshments, door prizes, and plenty of witty conversation, of course, plus a chance to be entered into our Grand Prize raffle.
