DataRescue events were organized by local communities with support from EDGI and DataRefuge. From Fall 2016 through Spring 2017 they brought together scientists, coders, librarians, and volunteers to identify and preserve at-risk datasets in collaboration with the Internet Archive. In the three months following the 2016 election, events worked to extensively seed the Internet Archive’s End of Term Harvest project.
