    Abstract:

    Governments around the world adopt transparency reforms to facilitate accountability. In principle, open proceedings provide citizens with valuable information to evaluate elected officials’ decisionmaking, which incentives lawmakers to follow mass preferences when choosing policies. However, the public’s general lack of knowledge and engagement with the political process may weaken the power of open information, and perhaps instead allow citizens and groups with extreme views to exer…

  • 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 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.

    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 Fall 2014, I was apart of a team at the University of Notre Dame’s Kresge Law Library (KLL) that conducted a social media survey focusing on graduate students. The survey helped the KLL develop a social media strategy and I taught trained the staff and librarians how to utilize Facebook and Twitter for library marketing. I wrote this Social Media Guide to help guide the KLL in content creation and suggested tips.

    Abstract:

    An increasing amount of scientific work is performed in silico, such that the entire process of investigation, from experiment to publication, is performed by computer. Unfortunately, this has made the problem of scientific reproducibility even harder, due to the complexity and imprecision of specifying and recreating the computing environments needed to run a given piece of software. Here, we consider from a high level what techniques and technologies must be put in place to allow for the ac…

  • Author(s):
    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:

    The DASPOS project is an NSF-funded collaborative research project designed to explore the technical means of preserving the data and software components necessary to reproduce and build upon published scientific results. This technical report series consists of short reports that outline background, case studies, and technical results related to data preservation, with a focus on high energy physics.
