Digital Scholarship Workshops Spring 2020 Schedule

The Catholic University Libraries are offering a number of Digital Scholarship Workshops this semester. Can’t make it? We are available for individual consultations (students and faculty) and we can provide in-class workshops on a variety of tools and methodologies that can be tailored to your particular course needs. Come have a conversation with us! The workshops are co-sponsored by the Department of Library and Information Science.

Location: Mullen Library Instruction Room
R.S.V.P. for all workshops: Kevin Gunn, gunn@cua.edu

Text Analysis with Voyant Tools and AntConc Thurs., Feb. 13, 12:30pm – 2:00pm
Computational analysis of textual data can aid in reading and interpreting large corpora. Exploring a large number of texts can uncover linguistic patterns for future exploratory analysis. Participants will gain hands-on experience analyzing textual data with AntConc and some Voyant Tools. No coding experience necessary. Instructor: Kevin Gunn, Coordinator of Digital Scholarship

Data Cleaning with Excel Wed., March 4, 12:10 pm – 1:40 pm
Continuing with our series on manipulating data, we will do some basic data cleaning using Excel. We will show you some tricks, formulae, and tools in working with datasets in Excel. Identifying and treating blank cells, removing duplicates, identifying errors, removing formatting, and converting data into more flexible formats, are just some of the skills imparted. Basic Excel experience is recommended. Instructor: Kevin Gunn, Coordinator of Digital Scholarship

Amplifying Your Research Impact Mon., March 23, 2:10 pm – 3:10 pm
Learn how to effectively promote and share your research online. We will discuss best practices for using social media, depositing research in disciplinary repositories, and working with tools and platforms that can help authors expand their readership. Instructor: Kevin Gunn, Coordinator of Digital Scholarship

Visualizing Network Data with Gephi Fri., April 3, 12:10 pm – 1:40 pm
See your data from a fresh perspective through network analysis and visualization. Using Gephi, we will create some network graphs from sample datasets. Basic concepts of network analysis will be covered while we learn to use Gephi to explore, analyze, and visualize network data. Instructor: Kevin Gunn, Coordinator of Digital Scholarship

Introduction to the Open Science Framework Tues., April 7, 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm
The Open Science Framework (OSF) is a platform for research project management and collaboration. Come and see how to use the OSF for your entire project lifecycle (e.g. discovering research, work with other researchers at other institutions, and share your research and datasets). Humanities and Social Science researchers are welcome. Instructors: Lea Wade, STEM Librarian and Kevin Gunn, Coordinator of Digital Scholarship
