Former ICPSR intern John Leverso (2013), Data Jeff, and ICPSR Director Margaret Levenstein represented the ICPSR community at the June 12, 2019, ceremony in Washington for winners of the 2019 National Medal for Museum Library Service.
A win for the entire ICPSR community

Dory Knight-Ingram, EditorThis has been an amazing year, so far, for ICPSR. We were thrilled to announce that we won a National Medal for Museum Library Service! Awarded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the medal is the nation’s highest honor given to museums and libraries that make significant and exceptional contributions to their communities. We share this achievement with the entire ICPSR community!

Another great moment earlier this year came with our Adopt a Dataset campaign during Love Data Week in February. Not only were 65 datasets adopted, but a cool new data star (and hashtag) was born: #DataJeff. Follow us on social media to keep up to data on Data Jeff's latest pursuits.

Also in this edition of the ICPSR Bulletin, you'll find info on our upcoming 2019 ICPSR Biennial Meeting, new data and projects, and good news about some of the people behind ICPSR. We’ll be back with another edition in the fall, with even more great ICPSR news to share after the Biennial Meeting.


Thanks for reading!
