This workshop examines questionnaire design for online and paper questionnaires, such as screen layout and appearance, the use of images, and other aspects of the user interface which affect the accuracy of survey results. This course does not include programming, but focuses on the conceptual issues and considerations underpinning questionnaire design for online and paper designs. It also considers the design issues involved in combing such modes can be combined with other data collection modes, i.e., in-person or telephone. The workshop will conclude at 1:30, with a half-hour allotted after that time for Q&A.Registration required; please click "More Information" below to access the registration form.

Tableau Public (available for both Windows and Mac) is free software that allows individuals to quickly create interactive visualizations of their research and business analytics data.  This workshop will focus on using Tableau Public to create data visualizations, starting with an overview of the structure of the program and the terminology used. The workshop will include a sample data visualization and mapping project, focusing especially on some of the new features in Tableau Public 9. We will also discuss publishing to the Tableau Public web server and related services and tools, like the full Tableau Desktop application (free for full-time students).

Enjoy your Metadata: Fun with Date Encoding

Bitstreams - Fri, 2016-01-22 21:06

1024px-Ripe_and_dry_dates_fruit_bunchesDates are fascinating. They mark time. They’re based, imperfectly, on the pattern of the Earth’s planetary motion. (A year is a little bit longer than 365 days, so our calendar system adds leap years to compensate. Still, it’s off somewhat over thousands of years.) For digital collections it’s important to know when the original item … Continue reading Enjoy your Metadata: Fun with Date Encoding

VFF: The Scientist in the Sandbox: What's inside a Granular Material?

Granular materials surround us in everyday life: cereals, ores, soil, and pills are some of many examples. Despite their ubiquity, our understanding of these materials is limited, in no small part due to the difficulty of visualizing them. I will describe approaches that we have developed to "look inside" these materials. Of course, the goal is to use these tools to understand the behavior of granular materials, and this talk will focus on recent results that have addressed this issue.

[CANCELLED] DVS Workshop: Basic Data Cleaning and Analysis for Data Tables

Tables of data, like those you see in spreadsheets or relational databases, are the foundation of most data-driven research today.  There are many pitfalls of working with these tables, though, that most people end up having to learn the hard way.  In this workshop, we'll take a dataset that has a variety of different properties and learn to work through many common steps of data-driven research to clean and begin analyzing the data.  We'll be using Excel to make sure the methods we suggest can be reproduced easily "at home," but many of these techniques are important for other data analysis tools as well. No data experience necessary.

January 22 will mark the sixth anniversary of President Obama's promise to close Guantanamo. On Thursday, January 21, the Human Rights Archive at Duke's Rubenstein Library will be hosting a presentation by Peter Jan Honigsberg on "The Lives and Voices of Guantanamo: The Work of the Witness to Guantanamo Project." The Witness to Guantanamo project has filmed in-depth interviews of 136 people who have lived or worked or have been involved in the Guantanamo Bay detention center. No one else in the world is doing this kind of work. Interviewees include not only detainees, but also prison guards, interrogators, interpreters, chaplains, medical personnel, habeas lawyers, prosecutors, journalists, high-ranking military and government officials, and family members of the detainees. The project has filmed more than 250 hours of video in 20 countries. Peter Jan Honigsberg is professor at the University of San Francisco, School of Law, and the founder and director of the Witness to Guantanamo project. Professor Honigsberg has written books, law review articles and blog pieces on Guantanamo and on post-9/11 issues. He was recently invited to speak to the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva. Professor Honigsberg is the author of "Our Nation Unhinged" (University of California Press, 2009). He is currently working on a book on his research and work with the Witness to Guantanamo project.

Heralding the Way to a New World: Exploring Women in Science and Medicine through the Lisa Unger Baskin Collection

Rubenstein Library Mary Duke Biddle Room
From the first entomologist to capture the stages of metamorphosis of the butterfly (1705) to the first reformer to open a birth control clinic in Great Britain (1921), the women in this exhibit were pioneers in science and medicine. Whether self-trained or classically educated, they not only made groundbreaking contributions to their fields, but also helped open the way for future generations to follow in their footsteps. Despite their accomplishments, most of these women remain overlooked or under-recognized. This exhibition highlights the stories of seven revolutionary women in science and medicine and celebrates the arrival of the Lisa Unger Baskin Collection, from which these materials were selected. Image: "The Southern Celestial Hemisphere," from Margaret Bryan's A compendious system of astronomy. (London, 1797.)
