Beyond Systematic: The Librarian’s Role in Shaping Reviews - MLA

Wednesday, December 7, 2016, 2:00 – 3 PM, HSCL Room C2-41C

 

As review articles evolved from traditional narrative reviews to methods-based reviews, the librarian’s role likewise evolved from the traditional literature searcher to expert searcher and review methodology navigator. The “systematic review” buzzword now encompasses a variety of methodologies and review types, from the well-known systematic reviews and meta-analyses to rapid reviews, scoping reviews, meta-syntheses, and more. 

Navigating these less well-known or evolving methodologies and guiding researchers along the entire process of the review are essential components of shaping the review. Using cases from the field, librarians and review experts will describe some of the methodologies beyond the systematic review and highlight how they are best put to use. Since many tough systematic review questions are situation specific, experts will also tackle viewer-submitted stumpers and share tips for shaping and framing the research question and guiding researchers to the best review type for their questions. Overall, this webcast will help viewers to differentiate among methods, understand how to shape research questions, and better guide researchers to choose appropriate methods.

Metadata for Research Data NEW DATE

Thursday, December 8, 2016, 3 – 4 PM, Marston Science Library, Room 308

Instructors: Allison Jai O’Dell and David Van Kleeck

 

Target Audience:

Anyone interested in and/or responsible for creating and managing data

 

Metadata is information about data – information which may describe data’s provenance, contents, elements, formats, purposes, and more. Metadata is used to support discovery, interpretation, application, and preservation of data. Data repositories usually require structured metadata, and may specify formats to use or elements to include. Following metadata best practices in your field will help colleagues access, understand, and repurpose your data.

 

This workshop will introduce participants to best practices for data hygiene and metadata to help researchers make their data accessible, processable, and repurposable.  Participants will also learn about metadata resources and services provided by the University of Florida Libraries, such as, development and application of metadata guidelines; thesaurus and ontology development; data analysis, merger, and transformation; and access to metadata sets.

Regular Expressions in Practice - mashcat

Tuesday, December 20, 2016, 3 – 4 PM, Library West, Room 419

 

Regular expressions are not just for programmers anymore; they are supported by common software and systems used for cataloging and metadata, and allow for very powerful search and replace, even complete reformatting of library data! In this webinar, we’ll discuss the building blocks of regular expressions, practice identifying what they match (and do not match!), and consider how we can use them to make everyday library work more efficient.
