DVS Workshop: Tidy Data Visualization with Python

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Thu, 2017-11-09 18:00
Thu, Nov 09, 2017
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Bostock Library 023(Library Classroom)
Python can be a great option for exploration, analysis and visualization of tabular data, like spreadsheets and CSV files, if you know which tools to use and how to get started. This workshop will take you through some practical examples of using Python and the Pandas module inside a Jupyter notebook, to load data, transform it into a standard "tidy" format, and visualize it with Seaborn (or another similar module). There are no prerequisites for this workshop - familiarity with the Python programming language is not required, but you will probably find it easier to follow if you have a little coding experience since we will not be giving an overview of the language itself. Instead, the focus will be on learning how to use the language through conceptual understanding and recipes for specific, commonly-useful tasks.

DVS Workshop: Research Collaboration Strategies & Tools

1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop RoomFirst Floor
Scholars increasingly work on collaborative research projects. Collaborative projects often bring together partners across disciplines, institutions, and sectors. These projects present opportunities for innovation but also raise challenges for the development of efficient and effective workflows and the management of data. This workshop will examine considerations for collaborative research and present some strategies for developing and documenting workflows as well as methods for storing and sharing data. We will also look at some tools (i.e., Box, OSF, PRDN, etc.) available at Duke that can be used to support these types of projects.

Film Screening: "Fire at Sea / Fuocoammare" (2016)

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Thu, 2017-11-02 23:00
Join the Rubenstein Library's Human Rights Archive and the Duke Human Rights Center @FHI for a special film screening, photo exhibition, and post-film discussion.The first documentary to ever win the top award at the Berlin International Film Festival, "Fire at Sea" takes place in Lampedusa, a once peaceful Mediterranean island that has become a major entry point for African refugees into Europe. There, we meet Samuele, a 12-year-old boy who lives simply, climbing rocks by the shore and playing with his slingshot. Yet nearby we also witness thousands of men, women, and children trying to survive the crossing from Africa in boats that are too small for such a journey. Filmmaker Gianfranco Rose masterfully places these realities side by side, and in so doing creates a remarkable third narrative that jolts us into a new understanding of what is really happening in the Mediterranean today.The screening will be accompanied by an exhibit of works by photographer Darrin Zammit Lupi, who will participate in a post-screening discussion.Free and open to the public.

SSRI~ Workshop: Introduction to SAS Session 2: Data Analysis

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Thu, 2017-11-02 18:00
This workshop offers an overview of the SAS programming language, focusing on data management activities. Session 1 includes a general overview of major SAS components (Program Editor, Log and Output) and the core concepts of SAS programming (DATA and PROC steps). It focuses on the process of importing and modifying data, including issues of importing/exporting data from other file formats, merging and concatenating data sets, and adding to or subsettting from datasets. Key SAS statements described include: PROC IMPORT, SET, MERGE, IF-THEN, and WHERE. Session 2 focuses on data analysis, including variable creation/recoding and descriptive analyses typically used in data management. Key SAS statements described include: PROC CONTENTS, PROC MEANS, and PROC FREQ. Together, these two sessions allow researchers to learn basic data management processes using the SAS statistical system.

DVS Workshop: Consent, Data Sharing and Data Reuse

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2017-10-24 17:00
Research involving humans requires multiple approaches to protect participants' anonymity. If you are planning to (or are required to) share your human subjects' data outside of your original project team, or plan to re-use data you collected previously for a new research project, you will need to design a consent form/consent protocol that properly addresses these situations. This workshop will present various research scenarios with examples of how consent protocols should be developed.
