    Abstract:

    The iconic Hesburgh Library building was nearing its 50th anniversary when review of the facilities program began in advance of renovation planning. This talk centers on graduate student workspaces, in particular closed study carrels that were characterized as ‘mop closets’ by some occupants. In 2013, review of existing data and feedback informed the initial planning for renovation of one tower floor in the library and its graduate student spaces. Through a series of focus groups, ope…

    Abstract:

    Do you struggle with locating your files? Is it nearly impossible for you to find and retrieve articles and content that you’ve saved on a moment’s notice? Does your bookmark file look like a junk drawer from the kitchen or garage? Are you still storing 17 drafts of that paper you completed, turned in, edited, resubmitted and received a final grade on years ago because you don’t remember which paper-final-final-final.doc is the actual final copy?

    If yes is the answer to any of these questio…

    Abstract:

    Creating an accountability group is a way to extend one of the benefits of dissertation camp: You build a community of people around you who are doing the same thing, which compels you to stay focused on your work. Many students who are wrapping up their camp experience ask about how to form their own ongoing writing group. This document seeks to introduce some ways to do this to ensure understanding of the goals and working styles to which your group agrees. Through mutual understanding and …

    Abstract:

    This presentation will help students in all fields plan their strategy to and manage their research while traveling abroad. It introduces students to faculty in the Hesburgh Libraries who are able to provide consultations on data and research management consultations, and addresses how students should think about their data backups (and more backups) and what they need to consider when returning to the home institution.

  • Abstract:

    Between October and December 2015, a small study was conducted to understand the past and current collaborations between academic campus museums and libraries. Association of American Universities, Private (AAUP) libraries were contacted to share the relationships they have with their campus museums and galleries. Specifically, art librarians were targeted as the Snite Museum is an art museum. From these responses, recommendations were made to the University Librarian for potential partnershi…

    Abstract:

    In summer 2015, I explored the possibility of a Materials Library being built at the University of Notre Dame (ND). The interest for this came from faculty in the Art, Art History, and Design department. In this document many aspects of building such a collection and possible partners and departments on campus that might be interested are identified including ways to acquire materials, possible vendors, recommended readings, ways to organize such a collection, funding, and possible outreach o…

  • Abstract:

    In Spring 2015, I was apart of a team at the University of Notre Dame in the Engineering library that was assembled to collect data about the library space from faculty, staff and students in the College of Engineering. After the team collected data from January to April 2015, I wrote a report. The report analyzes the data and proposes potential changes to the library.

    Christoph Clavius
    Abstract:

    The Opera Mathematica of Christoph Clavius was compiled in 1611-1612 and contains works within the fields of both pure and applied mathematics. One of the most famous selections from this set is, of course, Clavius exposition of the Gregorian calendar. Except for the Commentary on Theodosius (1721) and the Commentary on John of Holywood’s Spheres (1784), however, there are no English translations of Clavius’ works. As Fr. MacDonnell wrote in 2001, “He was considered an illustrious mathemati…

  • Abstract:

    This session at CNI Fall Forum 2013 provides Notre Dame’s experience as a case study to provision research data curation and access services. Managing research outputs becomes a tall order of many universities, given their determined agenda to pursue research excellence. In a world of increasingly data-intensive research, data are rising as a critical component of scholarly communication, often mandated by granting agencies. Data curation, preservation, and access are paramount to the univers…
