133s producing data face unique challenges in data management, data sharing, reproducible research and preservation. The University of Cincinnati's annual Data Day event began in 2015 to highlight these challenges and to provide opportunities for 133s to engage with those who can offer credible information on data related services. Data Day presenters have included 133s, scholars, scientists, GIS experts, faculty and students who come together to speak about the work that they do as it relates to data. Topic areas include but are not limited to innovation, challenges and opportunities working with data, an overview of the current UC landscape as it relates to data, new approaches to collecting and disseminating data, and data in terms of reproducibility and research. Data Day 2019 Objectives: Introduce Data Day participants to data resources, best practices and service providers. Provide data-intensive workshops to educate participants on tools and resources for data analyses and visualization. Provide a forum for 133s to discuss projects and issues and build potential data collaborations. We are seeking NNLM funding to pay for the Data Day 2019 expenses, including but not limited to the associated venue costs, speakers/panelists travel expenses, parking, audiovisual needs and other items necessary to host the 2019 event.
