Summer Thesis Research Table

10:30 am - 11:30 am Frost Library, 1st floor research tables

The thesis research table is a regular meet-up for students who are starting work on a thesis project to find support from each other and from instructional staff. Each week will focus on an aspect of the research and writing process; topics will be determined by the group. These might be instructional activities, discussions, work sessions or whatever works for the group. Donuts and coffee will be served! Drop in or attend regularly. Hosted by Blake Doherty of Frost Library and Jessica Kem of the Writing Center.

Students Only

Zotero Workshop

Want to make your research process more organized and efficient? Attend a one-hour tutorial to get started with Zotero! Zotero [zoh-TAIR-oh] is a free application that helps you collect, manage, and cite your sources. It's available in all computer labs on campus and you can download it on your personal computer for free. If you're interested but can't make it to the workshop, click on the more information link below to see the full workshop schedule or to make an individual appointment.

Interactive Data Visualization on the Web

The World-Wide Web is a set of computer technologies that publish and display information over the Internet in a highly interactive manner. Snazzy, interactive visualizations of information produced by science or the digital humanities are all over the Web and easier to create than ever before. In this example-based course you’ll learn about:

• Enough Web plumbing (HTML, CSS, SVG) to write your own web pages;
• A programming language to manipulate your web pages (JavaScript);
• A visualization library (D3) that will make your data sparkle.

This workshop is in three parts:
Monday through Wednesday, July 9–11, 6–9 p.m.; light dinner provided at 5:30 p.m.
(additional meetings may be arranged if there is interest).
