DataRescue Austin is a nonpartisan alliance of local programmers, scientists, and writers dedicated to maintaining pubic access to federal data. The group is part of a national campaign to suppress information related to climate change and environmental degradation that is at risk of suppression and deletion for political reasons. On April 26, the group hosted an event at the Pickle Research Center to train new volunteers and to create trustworthy copies of federal climate and environmental data. The group particularly seeks the contributions of historians, whose own research depends greatly upon access to federally-controlled archives. Learn more about DataRescue Austin here. Questions about future volunteer events should be directed to Eric Busch ([email protected]), Digital Archivist and Historian at the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History.
