Digital data is easy to distribute–but it can easily disappear, too.

Join Yale researchers, scientists, librarians, archivists, programmers, technologists, and others for a one-day event to identify, download, and preserve federal research data. 

There are different paths and roles for DataRescue attendees, and we’re looking for participants with a variety of skills.

If you’re interested but unsure of how you might get involved, don’t worry: there’s a place for you! Just sign up, show up, and our Guides will help you choose a path
