DataRescue Davis

#DataRescueDavis: UC Davis to Host Event to Preserve Federally Funded Scientific Research

Help preserve scientific research! Join us for #DataRescueDavis, where we will work together to backup scientific data related to climate change and the environment that was produced with public funding and is available from federal websites. #DataRescueDavis is part of the nationwide #DataRefuge project, in collaboration with the Environmental Data & Governance Initiative and the Internet Archive’s End of Term project.

During the hackathon, participants will:

  • Seed the Internet Archive’s End of Term (EoT) web crawler with priority URLs to be archived (no experience required; training provided)

  • Scrape and download datasets that cannot be crawled by EoT (For this activity, participants should know a scripting language, such as R or Python, or be able to detect patterns in HTML. An overview of scraping techniques will be provided during the first hour.)

  • Learn the skills necessary to participate; training will be provided during the first hour by experts from the UC Davis Library’s Data and Digital Scholarship Department and the Data Science Initiative

—Free food, coffee, etc. provided throughout the event—


 —Experience not required; training provided during the first hour—
