SSRI-Gross Hall 230C
This event offers an opportunity to join a group in viewing a webinar provided by QSR about an application of its NVivo software entitled "Big Qualitative Data, Big Team, Little Time - A Path to Publication." Faculty and staff at Duke University used NVivo to analyze data using a coding team of nine researchers with no NVivo experience, all in a one-week time frame. This webinar will describe the project and research question, as well as the design, data management, and analysis process. We will share lessons learned from implementation successes and challenges, including developing a coding protocol, establishing coding reliability, and merging NVivo projects. Registration required; please click "more information" to access the registration form. (Note that this webinar is free and it is also possible to register and watch it independently from other locations; use this link: http://links.qsrinternational.mkt5276.com/ctt?kn=10&ms=NTA0MzcyNjQS1&r=MTI4OTM1NDYxNTYwS0&b=0&j=ODQxNDUyMTY3S0&mt=1&rt=0 to do so.)

SSRI~ Workshop: Introduction to Qualtrics Survey Software

12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
SSRI-Gross Hall 230E
This workshop offers an introduction to Qualtrics survey software, a package available (at no cost to researchers) for use across Duke's campus and medical center. This powerful, easy-to-use system is a great way to collect information online, whether as part of a research protocol or for administrative purposes such as program evaluation. This workshop will introduce participants to the Qualtrics system, demonstrate how to set up an account, create a questionnaire and access its results. It will also cover some basic tools that can be used to customize the questionnaire to fit your needs, such as using display and skip logic to collect more detailed information from a subset of your audience. The workshop is taught through the Duke Initiative on Survey Methodology (DISM) in collaboration with the Duke Office of Information Technology (OIT). Participants will receive a very brief overview of the consulting and other services DISM offers to help Duke researchers develop and conduct surveys. The workshop itself will conclude at 1:30, with a half hour after that time for Q&A. Registration required; please click "more information" to access the registration form.

A Little More Advanced Linux

Edge + Digital Scholarship Events - Mon, 2016-02-01 18:30
Mon, Feb 1, 2016
1:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Edge: Workshop Room
   This two-afternoon short-course extends the topics covered in The “Introduction to Linux” course. Familiarity with concepts covered in that introductory course is a pre-requisite for this course. Those not taking the Introduction to Linux course in the week before this advance course need to do a careful assessment of their knowledge of Linux. A review is a good idea.
   
   The course very briefly reviews core concepts, and quickly moves to topics relating to automating more complex series of tasks, principles and points of configuration, troubleshooting, and system security. Submission scripts for high-throughput/high-performance computing schedulers such as SLURM and Condor (both used at Duke) are also introduced.
   
   Course participants are required to bring their own laptop computer (you must have administrator access to this machine). Linux systems will be provided to participants, and they can use their laptops to access them. For people using a Windows laptops, please make sure that you have an SSH client installed (A free client can be downloaded and installed from: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html

Spreadsheets are a standard tool for many data projects, whether because of the ability to easily edit data, the ubiquity of spreadsheet programs, or the added features like charts and filters.  This workshop extends the introduction from our Basic Data Cleaning and Analysis for Data Tables workshop by focusing on more advanced features in Excel.  Examples include filtering, pivot tables, and data visualizations.

Scholarly Publishing in the Digital Age

Digital technologies have revolutionized scholarly publishing, by providing so many new and different ways to disseiminate and discover scholarship. Such changes force rethinking of traditional notions of what it means to publish, credit authors, cite authority, and even evaluate the impact of scholarly works. We'll explore these ideas in several Munch & Mull discussions in the spring semester, with a particular interest in how libraries and librarians redefine their role in light of these new possibilities.
