UNT's Annual Open Access Symposia
We've just added a panelist to the program for this year's Open Access Symposium: Mark Hays, who serves as Vice Chancellor of Workforce and Economic Development for the Dallas County Community College District. Hays is the central point of contact for private or public entities who need information about or resources and solutions for workforce training and job development as well as business creation or expansion. He will speak about the work of DCCCD's Labor Market Intelligence Center.
#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.
