They say go big or go home--we’re doing both! Duke University Library’s Low Maintenance Book Club goes online to present the Big Books Edition. We’re reading those hefty novels that you always meant to get around to, but….

Over three monthly meetings, we’ll discuss Charles Dickens’ David Copperfield (just in time to watch The Personal History of David Copperfield, starring Dev Patel). The first meeting will take place on Zoom, Tuesday, April 21st, noon-1pm EST and cover the Preface through Chapter 18. 

Electronic copies of David Copperfield can be found through Duke University Libraries and most public libraries. 

Although the readings are longer, the low maintenance attitude is the same. We’re all dealing with a lot right now! Join as you like, discuss as much as you want--or just hang out and enjoy the company. Everyone is welcome. Just RSVP so we know how many to expect, and we’ll send out a Zoom link the morning of the meeting. 

We hope you’ll join us!

Book Talk: Rachel Lance, Author of "In the Waves," on Solving the Mystery of a Civil War Submarine

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2020-04-15 20:00
Wed, Apr 15, 2020
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
On the night of February 17, 1864, the tiny Confederate submarine HL Hunley made its way toward the USS Housatonic outside Charleston harbor. Within a matter of hours, the Union ship's stern was blown open in a spray of wood planks. The explosion sank the ship, killing many of its crew. And the submarine, the first ever to be successful in combat, disappeared without a trace. For 131 years the eight-man crew of the Hunley lay in their watery graves, undiscovered. When finally raised, the narrow metal vessel revealed a puzzling sight. There was no indication the blast had breached the hull, and all eight men were still seated at their stations-frozen in time after more than a century. Why did the sub sink? How did the crew die? Archaeologists and conservationists have been trying to answer those questions for years. Now a Duke biomedical engineer and blast-injury specialist has solved the mystery. Join the Duke University Libraries for a book talk with Rachel Lance, author of "In the Waves." In the new book, Lance brings readers inside her incredible three-year investigation into the mysterious fate of the Hunley, which took her from Duke's Hyperbaric Medicine facility to the archives and museums around the country. Her research has been featured in the latest issue of Smithsonian, Nature, and CNN, among other news outlets. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.

ONLINE - Research Data Management 201: How and where to publish your data

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2020-04-07 17:00
Other (see event description)
West Campus

This event is now offered virtually due to Duke's Coronavirus-19 Events policy. Please contact sophia.lafferty.hess@duke.edu for information about accessing the workshop. A zoom link will be sent via email to join the workshop. 

Data management practices help researchers take care of their data throughout the entire research process from the planning phase to the end of a project when data might be shared or “published” within a repository. Building upon the foundational concepts covered in the Data Management 101 courses offered this year, this workshop will provide hands-on experience where participants will learn strategies for how to prepare data for publishing by “curating” an example dataset and identifying common data issues. Participants will also learn about the overall role of repositories within the data sharing landscape and learn strategies for locating and assessing repositories. 

Participants are not required to have taken a Data Management 101 course (although it is recommended). This workshop is also a reconceptualization of the previously offered “RDM 201: Preparing Your Data for Publishing” and “Finding a Home for Your Data: An Introduction to Archives and Repositories” workshops offered in previous semesters - participants who have attended these previous workshops should not attend.

This workshop is eligible for 2 hours of Graduate School RCR Credits.

The content of the workshop may be recorded. Cameras will capture the instructor station and the display screen. Ambient audio, including verbal audience  participation, will be included on the recording. Registration for the workshop indicates consent. If you are uncomfortable with a recording being published please contact the instructor at anytime prior to the conclusion of the workshop.
