  • Abstract:

    “The Gregorian calendar is the calendar used in most of the world. It was introduced in October 1582 by Pope Gregory XIII as a modification of, and replacement for, the Julian calendar. The principal change was to space leap years differently so as to make the average calendar year 365.2425 days long, more closely approximating the 365.2422-day ‘tropical’ or ‘solar’ year that is determined by the Earth’s revolution around the Sun.”

    “Because the date of East…

    A November 18, 2021, workshop by Donald Brower, PhD, University of Notre Dame.

    What is TeX? TeX is a system to produce formatted documents. While it can produce all kinds of documents, such as Articles, Slides, CVs, Handouts, and Exams, it is especially useful for items with mathematical formula (but that is not a requirement). TeX is a mark-up language, akin to HTML. One writes a text file containing commands that tell TeX how to format the file. Then one…

    Description:

    May studies here during the unfolding years bring growing radiance to the light of scientific learning enkindled at Notre Dame by Fathers Alexander M. Kirsch (1855-1923) and Francis J. Wenninger (1888-1940), Priests of Holy Cross, Teacher-Scholars in the Life Sciences, Deans.

    They have sown the seeds of learning which through years of patient growth give rich yield: thirty-fold, sixty-fold, a hundred-fold. …

    Abstract:

    Over time, the University of Notre Dame’s academic departments have changed names, split, ceased, or been formed. This document traces the genealogy, if you will, of Notre Dame’s academic departments from 1920 to 2022. Information presented here was gathered from the University of Notre Dame’s Undergraduate Bulletins of Information held by the University Archives.

    Abstract:

    As climate changes, coastal homeowners are potentially crucial actors in reducing the risks to property and human life from rising seas and increased hurricane activity. Absent strict, enforceable regulations mandating retrofitting of existing homes or major changes in homeowner insurance requirements, coastal resilience in a changing climate will largely reflect private, voluntary decisions of millions of individuals. However, research is scarce on the current risk level of U.S. coastal home…

    Abstract:

    Renaissance Society America Annual Conference, April 2020. Postponed due to COVID and delivered virtually on April 2, 2021.

    In 1575, a group of ‘gentildonne’ of Cesena authored a short pamphlet refuting the strict sumptuary laws of their city. The vernacular text presents erudite arguments, citing the works of Plato, Dante, and many others, to argue in support of the necessity of ornamental clothing. The pamphlet was print…

    Abstract:

    At the University of Notre Dame, we had the opportunity to reframe our partnership with the Writing and Rhetoric program as one based on teaching, rather than transactions. In this poster presentation, we share the strategies used to shift the conversation with the Writing and Rhetoric program, allowing them to see librarians as teaching partners who lead instruction sessions that are extensions of their curriculum rather than ones that take time away from their tight schedules. We will prese…

    Abstract:

    Using an academic library can feel overwhelming to first-year students. We make the case for including the libraries in summer programs to help students overcome library anxiety and become familiar with resources and services that are key to their academic success. This poster highlights our philosophy of using a strengths-based approach―one in which students build on their strengths and previous experiences―to introduce students to the academic library and the research process. We demonstrat…

    Abstract:

    Digital collections are deceptive; when users turn to online platforms to access content, the amount of work required to provide uninterrupted access to digital materials is not always obvious or clear. One aspect of this work is taken care of by our software developers and product owners, who work to ensure that the interface and user experience are as simple and effective as possible to our end-users. While that aspect of the work is handled, other library staff and faculty must then take o…
