    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:

    The presenters will outline efforts to create a unified discovery platform for digital collections from libraries, archives, and museums. They will guide attendees through the process of designing harmonized metadata profiles for these related but very different domains, including solutions for conciliating controlled vocabularies. They will discuss the software stack’s approach to moving the harmonized data from varied back-end systems to a singular point from which they build out multiple s…

    Abstract:

    Since the publication of the “FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data management and stewardship” (Wilkinson et al., 2016), a wide-variety of sciences, mathematics, and other data-intensive fields have utilized the principles to promote reusability of data and ensure the long-term preservation of valuable outputs. In particular, domain experts and leading researchers have organized hackathons and sprints to define FAIR for their specific domains. Similarly, these domain experts have creat…

    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:

    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:

    This presentation is a companion to the poster image shared in the CurateND repository. It has detailed information about the history, inception and administration of the Undergraduate Library Research Award (ULRA) award. It is setup to autoplay the slides in movie format. It was originally shared during a poster presentation at the 2016 Academic Libraries of Indiana (ALI) meeting in 2016.

    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:

    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.

  • 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…
