Avoid the Check-Out Lines

line_4_tnb

In a hurry? Line just too long? Head over to a Self-Check machine and you’ll be on the go in no time. Best part? Almost never a line!

Geisel Library offers five self-check stations (opposite the Front Desk on both the east and west sides)

Never done it before? It’s easy:

  1. Move your ID card under the red light with the barcode facing up.
  2. Doing one book at a time, slide the book’s barcode under the red light.
  3. Listen for the “clunk” sound.
  4. Press “Done” after your last book.
  5. Print [or don’t print] a receipt.

It’s that simple! So give it try the next time you visit us. You can also find Self-Check machines at the Biomedical Library.

Digital Media Lab Projects: 3D Campus Map

We finally figured out a way to rip data from google earth, much the way we would in real life. We took pictures from incremental angles and ran the photos through Agisoft Photoscan to stitch them back into a 3D model. The 3D model and texture are available on our sketchfab page.

BrowZine – Stay Current with Your Favorite Scholarly Journals

UC San Diego faculty, staff and students now have access to BrowZine. It’s a service that allows you to browse, organize, read and keep up with your favorite scholarly journals licensed by UC San Diego, either on your desktop/laptop via their website, or through an app on your mobile device. BrowZine covers arts, humanities, social science, engineering and science journals from hundreds of commercial, society, and university press publishers. We have licensed it through June 2018, at which point we will decide whether or not to continue licensing, based on usage, available funding, and user feedback.

DML Projects: 3D Printing from MRIs

The DML has been working with staff from the Cardiac Mechanics Research Group to format and print heart models from MRI data. We’re finding individual medical students and researchers needing to do the same, and we hope to build our skills with medical imaging in this coming year.

Workshop: Increasing Openness and Reproducibility in Quantitative Research

openscienceflyer

There are many actions researchers can take to increase the openness and reproducibility of their work. Please join us for a workshop, hosted by the Center for Open Science, to learn easy, practical steps researchers can take to increase the reproducibility of their work. The workshop will be hands-on. Using example studies, attendees will actively participate in creating a reproducible project from start to finish.

Topics covered:

  • Project documentation
  • Version control
  • Pre-Analysis plans
  • Open source tools like the Center for Open Science’s Open Science Framework to easily implement these concepts in a scientific workflow.

This workshop is aimed at faculty, staff, and students across disciplines, who are engaged in quantitative research. The workshop does not require any specialized knowledge of programming. Participants will gain a foundation for incorporating reproducible, transparent practices into their current workflows.

RSVP:  https://goo.gl/bIHJ5Z

LOCATION: San Diego Supercomputer Center in the Synthesis Center, La Jolla, CA 92093
DATE: Friday, April 29, 2016
TIME: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

The workshop will be led by April Clyburne-Sherin, Reproducible Research Evangelist at the Center for Open Science and coheads their training programs for reproducible research methods. She has an MS in Epidemiology from the University of Guelph.
