Data, Science, & Librarians, Oh My!
My thoughts as I navigate the world of data librarianship.
I am really pleased to finally announce that the LIS Scholarship Archive is officially, 100% launched! LISSA is an open source, open access disciplinary repository for library and information science which I co-founded this year. A really great opportunity for LIS to holistically publish their work openly!
See this post on GitLab's blog here.
NYU reproducibility librarian Vicky Steeves shares why GitLab is her choice for ongoing collaborative research, and how it can help overcome challenges with sharing code in academia.
GitLab is a great platform for active, ongoing, collaborative research. It enables folks to work together easily and share that work in the open. This is especially poignant given the problems in sharing code in academia, across time and people.
So I'm at SciPy2017 (I had a talk on ReproZip accepted - slides) and I learned about some amazing open source tools for research! This year, SciPy 2017 was in Austin, Texas from July 10-16, 2017. It was the 16th annual Scientific Computing with Python Conference, and focused on great new tools and methods for research with Python.
These are my top 5 favorite takeaways from SciPy 2017!
FUCK YEAH OA WOMEN is a website which contains a searchable, sortable list of women who do work in the field of openness: open access, open science, open scholarship, open source code, open data, open education resources -- anything open. There is also a map available for folks who would like to look for women leaders nearest them -- the hope is that this map makes planning conferences, workshops, and events more convenient.
