There will be additional events including a sleep-panel including a doctor from Duke Institute for Brain Sciences and former professional athletes, as well a Wellness Coaching Workshop. Learn how to sleep your way to the top!

VFF: From Pixels to Knowledge: Extracting Insights from Energy Data through Visualization

Understanding limited energy resource availability has been a perennial challenge since humans first harnessed fire. In recent years, vast quantities of energy data sources have been emerging through the deployment of smart metering infrastructure and improved data collection and curation of organizations like the U.S. Energy Information Administration. I'll discuss emerging efforts to learn more about the energy system and how to increase its efficiency through visualized energy data. One example I'll discuss is how visual data, namely satellite imagery and aerial photography, are being used to automate energy resource assessment.

What We Find In Books: The Mummy Edition

Preservation Underground - Fri, 2016-04-15 13:00
gekkoIf we discover her other leg, maybe we can reattach it.

This gecko mummy was found in a collection being processed at Smith Warehouse. I suspect she was long gone before the collection came to us.

Geckos are what we call an indicator species. They don’t pose a hazard to your collections per se. She may have crawled into these papers looking for a snack of insects, or a nice place to raise (or deposit) a family.

As we approach Preservation Week at the end of April, it’s a good reminder that you shouldn’t store your collections in basements, garages, attics or outbuildings. Spaces with unregulated environments can harbor unwanted guests looking for a dark, quiet home or a food source.
