New Conservation Exhibit: How a Book is Made

Preservation Underground - Fri, 2017-03-10 18:27

Our new exhibit focuses on how a book is made “from the ground up.”  In the exhibit you will see examples of binding structures dating from the 4th Century C.E. to the 21st Century C.E. Also in the display is a selection of tools used by bookbinders, and an overview of how a book is made.

The exhibit is open during regular library hours. It is located on the first lower level of Perkins Library, just outside the Verne and Tanya Roberts Conservation Lab (Perkins Library 023). Please stop by and let us know what you think.

This talk will discuss the use of R Shiny, an open source framework for building interactive data visualizations, to teach research methods. Over the course of the last few months, Dr. Eric Green (DGHI) and I have been developing Shiny Apps to embed in Global Health Research | Design and Methods, the online textbook he has written and uses in GLTH 371/PSY 309. This talk will discuss the motivation behind creating apps as a tool for teaching research methods and share how we've tried to reconcile the incredible power of R and Shiny with the need to create curated examples that students can use to learn various research methods concepts.
