DVS Workshop: Tidying hierarchical data from the web with Professor Colin Rundel

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2018-11-13 15:00
Bostock Library 023
(Library Classroom)
Gathering data from the web presents unique challenges to the researcher. Only rarely is the data we need available as a tidy rectangle that can be easily imported and directly analyzed. During this workshop we will discuss some of the common data formats (e.g. json, xml) and data sources (e.g. APIs, web scraping) as well as the tools / packages / best practices for ingesting these data using the R programming language.

Duke at Home in the World at Duke Libraries

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Mon, 2018-11-12 17:00
Perkins 217
West Campus

In collaboration with the Libraries Assembly Professional Affairs Committee, International and Area Studies here in the Libraries are hosting presentations and an international buffet for November’s Duke at Home in the World campaign:

Three speakers from IAS, Luo Zhou (China), Holly Ackerman (Latin America), and Miree Ku (Korea) will describe a project in which they’re currently involved, and then say a few words about how they have collaborated with others (both inside and outside of the library) to fulfill the priorities in the university strategic plan, and in particular, with the need to create a supportive environment for research and learning that is, at once, both “Globally Engaged, [and] Locally Grounded.” There will also be a pop-up exhibit of international literary prize-winning books.

November 2018 Collection Spotlight: Hidden Service

Humanities - Mon, 2018-11-12 14:54

 

Today Duke commemorates Veteran’s Day.  You can see a list of events going on here.  Here at DUL we’re focusing on “Hidden Service” in our collection spotlight by showcasing fiction and non-fiction books that explore the contributions and experiences of soldiers from a variety of backgrounds, including women, LGBT, African-American, Native American, Asian-American, and Latino/a soldiers.  You can check out this display at the Collection Spotlight rack near our Perkins Library Service Desk on the first floor of Perkins.  Here’s a brief selection of the titles you will find there:

Code Talker by Chester Nez

Be Safe I Love You by  Cara Hoffman

Going for Broke: Japanese American Soldiers in the War against Nazi Germany by James M. McCaffrey

I’m Still Standing: From Captive U.S. Soldier to Free Citizen– My Journey Home by Shoshana Johnson

A Legacy Greater than Words: Stories of U.S. Latinos & Latinas of the WWII Generation by Maggie Rivas-Rodriguez

Dien Cai Dau by Yusef Komunyakaa

The Hello Girls: America’s First Women Soldiers by  Elizabeth Cobbs

Our Time: Breaking the Silence of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” by Josh Seefried.

This collection spotlight was partially inspired by the current World War One exhibit in Rubenstein Library and a recent talk in early November called ” ‘If We Must Die’: African Americans and the War for Democracy.”  Professor Adriane Lentz-Smith, author of Freedom Struggles: African Americans and World War I, gave the talk.
