Help preserve federal government data! Join us for a one-day event as we locate data to archive from the federal government and find ways to archive what web crawlers cannot grab. The best part is that you don’t need programming skills to participate–just the ability to use the Internet. 

DataRescue New Haven @ Yale is an effort to identify, download, and preserve federal research data to ensure ongoing access by scholars, policymakers, journalists, and the public. This event is modeled on DataRescues happening around the United States. To learn more about the DataRefuge project and DataRescue events, visit http://www.ppehlab.org/datarefuge

There are many ways to contribute to a DataRescue event. We are looking for participants who have experience with any of the following: 

  • Internet browsing
  • subject area/disciplinary knowledge
  • front- or back-end web design
  • programming language(s)
  • APIs or web scraping
  • knowledge of data formats
  • metadata
  • social media skills

Everyone is welcome; we will find a role for you! 

Please bring your own laptop to the event. Refreshments will be provided. 

Data Rescue New Haven @ Yale is sponsored by the Yale University Library, the Yale Law School Lillian Goldman Law Library, the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, and the Institution for Social and Policy Studies, with support from the Office of the Deputy Provost.
