ED21A - Dirty Stories of Data Rescue: Sharing Successes and Learning Opportunities to Improve Workflows eLightning
Other Events

How often have we heard a story about old research notes, found by chance, that made a study possible, or changed the course of a project? How often have we heard someone lament the passing of a colleague and the loss of their records, or the discovery of a trove of old magnetic tapes or digital files? What other close calls of data loss have been averted by the efforts of data rescuers and conservators? Stories are a fundamental part of our shared scientific culture. By encouraging scientists to share their stories, we can create deeper engagement with data rescue and conservation efforts. Storytellers in this session will present their efforts as a narrative, and participants can then engage with the storytellers at their eLightning posters to encourage discovery of additional data rescue and conservation pathways.
