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

Workshop: OpenRefine: Regular Expressions & APIs

 

Building on the previous OpenRefine workshop, we will work with regular expressions and construct a script from scratch and run some basic recipes for solving common problems. We will construct a simple API call to search for our data.

 

Instructors: Christian James, Web Application Librarian, and Kevin Gunn, Coordinator of Digital Scholarship

Workshop: Using OpenRefine for Manipulating Data


When working with your dataset, have you wondered how to remove ‘null’ or ‘N/A’ from fields, handle different spellings of words, or determining whether a field name is ambiguous? For this workshop, we will use the Open Access software, OpenRefine, to clean, manipulate, and refine a dataset before analysis. You are welcome to bring your own dataset.

Workshop: Working with Giphy Images

A brief hands-on workshop on how to create animated GIFs using GIPHY CAM. Attendees will learn helpful tips and tricks, then create their own animation using photos and found items.

Managing, organizing, and documenting your data is an increasing concern for researchers. This workshop is an overview of research data management basics, including using data management plans; following proper guidelines for naming and organizing data, folders, and files; organizing, storing, and backing up your files; and documenting your data using README files, codebooks, and data dictionaries. This workshop will provide you with techniques in managing your data (and time!) better.

Workshop: Data Visualization Basics

Have you wondered when you should use a pie chart (almost never), a scatter plot, or a heat graph?

Before working on how to best present your project through data visualization, understanding the basic principles of visual perception, design and representing data, and communicating your research to an audience, is essential. We will examine how your data can be applied to various visualization methods and how to visually present data accurately.
