Got Data?

Queen’s University’s first Data Day is an opportunity to meet researchers and data service providers in a shared forum. You will hear from researchers working with diverse data sets, learn more about the recent consultation document, Toward a Policy Framework for Advancing Digital Scholarship in Canada, and how services at Queen’s and beyond can help you preserve and increase the reach of your data.
