    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…

    Description:

    This poster seeks to communicate the ways the Undergraduate Library Research Award (ULRA) not only spotlights superb research and writing by undergraduates, but also highlights the students’ own words to describe the value and benefits of the Libraries’ resources and services.

    The Objectives listed are: Using the evolution of ND’s ULRA as the example, session participants will be able to create

    Description:

    This evaluation form copy is a sample of the questions that are asked at each graduate dissertation or thesis camp provided by the Hesburgh Libraries, the University Writing Center and the Graduate School at the University of Notre Dame. The questions are asked of participants and then used to evaluate content, presenters and programming support services. Changes to the programming are often initiated by evaluation of this feedback.

    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.
