Are you a positive, dedicated person? Do you have basic computer and customer services skills, but you’re looking for more? And most importantly, do you love books, technology, and helping others? Then, a job at the library may be for you!
The UCBA Library is seeking student workers to join a welcoming work environment with flexible hours, focused on providing exceptional service. We are especially looking for students with availability from 11-2 on Mondays and 11-5 on Fridays.
On November 4th, UC Libraries partnered with the Cincinnati-Dayton Region office of the Red Cross and the Geography Graduate Student Association (GGSA) to hold a Missing Maps mapathon.
Twenty students, librarians and Red Cross members gathered at Langsam Library where Red Cross interns Michael Gladstone and Meri Sambou led the group through a brief training and explained the task assigned.
Recently UC Libraries and the Graduate School hosted the Center for Open Science for two workshops on research reproducibility. The Center for Open Science, a non-for-profit based in Charlotteville, Va. promotes openess, integrity and transparency in research. Ian Sullivan of the COS facilitied the workshop and worked with researchers to address several types of repoducibility issues in research- Computational, Methodological and Results replicability.
Computational reproducibility means that given the data and code/analysis methods used, someone else could reproduce the graphs and calculations in your paper or report. Methodological reproducibility means that someone else could follow your protocols and rerun the experperiment or research again and get the same results as you did. And results replicability means that with new data and using your methods and analysis, someone else can come to the same conclusion as you did.
