XSEDE (eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment) is a virtual system that provides compute resources for scientists and researchers from all over the country. Its mission is to facilitate research collaboration among institutions, enhance research productivity, provide remote data transfer, and enable remote instrumentation. XSEDE is funded by National Science Foundation (NSF).  Getting Started Guide for XSEDE.

 

 

News from the RDS Research Labs @ GMP

As we begin the UC Maymester session, we are excited to share news about our students working in the Research and Data Services Research Labs @ the Geology Math and Physics Library.

We say farewell to one of our students working in the labs.  Sobiya George will return to the Chemistry Department for the summer and continue her research projects in Dr. Anna Gudmundsdottir’s lab.  We appreciate Sobiya’s hard work on the ImageJ and Zotero workshops, and wish her luck on her research.

And we offer many congratulations to Zhiyuan Yao on her acceptance to the AAG-UCGIS Summer School 2019.   Through this NSF supported program, Zhiyuan will be working with “30 graduate students and early career scholars to learn and collaborate in developing novel solutions to complex problems and to take advantage of geospatial data science and cutting-edge scientific advances and technical capabilities of cyberGIS (e.g., CyberGIS-Jupyter and Virtual ROGER: cybergis.illinois.edu/infrastructures). Participants will experience the types of collaborative and professional interactions that are key to addressing reproducible geospatial problem solving in the context of computation- and/or data-intensive research involving confidential geospatial data.”  This is an amazing opportunity for Zhiyuan to grow her skills and meet other researchers in the GIS field.  To learn more about this program, visit their website.  Good luck and enjoy the program.

The lab will be open for consultations and workshops over the summer.  Check the Research Labs website  for the latest information on hours and any closures due to vacations.  Please note that many changes are coming to the libraries website as part of the greater UC website refresh.  For now, one easy way to find the Research Labs website is to visit the library libguide page and type in GIS.  The parent RDS website can now be found under the Research tab on the main Libraries.uc.edu website.  Email AskData@UC.edu if you have any questions.

Reflections of UC Data Day 2019 –

Article Written by Rebecca Olson – Social Science and Business Informationist.

On April 1, 2019, UC Libraries hosted the 4th annual Data Day Conference. A celebration of research being held on campus, in the local area, and on the national and international level, this year’s focus was on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in data.

The first keynote speaker, Amanda J. Wilson, detailed the All of Us program the National Library of Medicine and National institute of Health have funded and promoted. Individuals are allowed to take charge of their health by participating in and directing research. Parts of the program include providing access to resources at libraries, community centers, and laundromats to reach the broadest population.
