Open Access @ UNT is an initiative that provides information about the open access movement and engages researchers at UNT by providing information about UNT's adoption of an institutional open access policy.
#DataRescueDenton will be held on Saturday, May 20, in Denton, just after the Open Access Symposium 2017 in Frisco. #DataRescueDenton is an opportunity for programmers, scientists, archivists, activists, and volunteers of all kinds to identify, back-up, and help preserve publicly accessible federal data resources in the public interest, in the event they are removed from public view and use. We will hear from experts on the challenges of preserving born-digital at-risk data and related issues followed by breakout sessions for the hack-a-thon.
We are still finalizing the program for this year's Open Access Symposium. The symposium will begin on Thursday, May 18, with a workshop on OpenRefine from 12 to 1:30 p.m. and then a workshop on using US Census data from 2 to 5 p.m. Friday features presentations and panel discussions from approximately 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. A single registration fee will cover attendance on both days.
Plans are coming together for Making Use of Public Data, this year's UNT Open Access Symposium, to be held May 18–19, 2017, at the UNT New College at Frisco.
