DCIG Meeting at ALA Midwinter

Sunday, January 26, 2014
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm, US/Eastern


If you are heading to ALA Midwinter in January please consider joining us on Sunday, January 26, 2014 from 1:00pm-2:30pm (US/Eastern) for the DCIG ALA Midwinter meeting.  The meeting will be held in Room PCC-104B (Pennsylvania Convention Center).

We are pleased to announce that at the meeting we will have a presentation by Richard Ball (Associate Professor of Economics at Haverford College) and Norm Medeiros (Associate Librarian at Haverford College) as they present "Teaching Students to Document Empirical Research: A Protocol for Documenting Data Management and Analysis".  

A description of their presentation follows: "This presentation will describe a protocol we have developed for teaching students conducting empirical research to document their work in such a way that their results are completely reproducible and verifiable. The protocol prescribes the creation and organization of a set of data, command, and metadata files, and is guided by the principle that an independent researcher, using only the data and information contained in these files, should be able to replicate every step of the data management and analysis. We will demonstrate how these files are described, preserved, and made accessible for replication by third-parties."

After the presentation we will have a short business meeting and all attendees to the presentation are encouraged to stay and participate.  

We hope to see you there!
