- ItemOpen AccessData Management Planning(2018-05) Brosz, JohnResearch data, whether made up of spreadsheets, interview transcripts, image collections, digital records, or other material, will be crucial to your career as a graduate student and researcher. Properly managing this data you will save you time and headaches by ensuring your data is not accidentally lost while making your data easier to work with and verifying your research findings. This session will focus on how to manage your data before, during, and after your research, as well as describe how to use Data Management Plan Assistant, a Canadian online tool for creating data management plans.

- ItemMetadata onlyPhysicsBox: Playful Educational Tabletop Games(ACM, 2010) Langner, Ricardo; Brosz, John; Dachselt, Raimund; Carpendale, SheelaghWe present PhysicsBox, a collection of three multi-touch, physics-based, educational games. These games, based on concepts from elementary science have been designed to provide teachers with tools to enrich lessons and support experimentation. PhysicsBox combines two current trends, the introduction of multi-touch tabletops into classrooms and research on the use of simulated physics in tabletop applications. We also provide a Java library that supports hardware independent multi-touch event handling for several tabletops.
- ItemOpen AccessProceedings of the Critical Roles for Libraries in Today’s Research Enterprise Symposium(2020-01-28) Brosz, JohnResearch has changed: have libraries? Today many academic libraries are seeking ways to better align with current research practice and to engage as vital partners in campus research. The issues are critical, necessary changes are fundamental, and libraries are developing new means and partnerships to sustain relevance. Held following the CNI Fall Membership Meeting, Critical Roles for Libraries in Today’s Research Enterprise was held December 11, 2019 in Washington DC for librarians, research administrators, and technology professionals to identify responses to this challenge.
- ItemOpen AccessRedesigning the Researcher-Library Experience(2019-12-10) Hickerson, H. Thomas; Brosz, JohnLibraries have developed ways of designing their online user experience and student experience. What is our design method for research? Researchers no longer depend on libraries for “search” and the resources purchased and licensed are of diminishing centrality. Providing new functional services, infrastructure, and expertise is essential. Services such as data curation, visualization, and geospatial analytics are now core capabilities. Capacities such as metadata, digitization, and copyright are being deployed in new ways. Library expertise and collaborative spaces are of critical importance. Yet, these often remain hidden by traditional image of libraries, or by organizational models obscuring vital points of intersection for both researchers and library staff. In this session, we will identify essential elements derived from case studies and offer recommendations and checklists for assessing, redesigning, and repositioning the library’s presence in campus research.
- ItemOpen AccessRemaining Relevant: Critical Roles for Libraries in the Research Enterprise(2019-08-25) Hickerson, H. Thomas; Brosz, JohnWith the advent of the internet and the increasing effectiveness of search engines, libraries’ contacts with researchers have steadily diminished. Moreover, the traditional disciplinary silos used to organize library collections and services have become less relevant to the multidisciplinary approaches required in addressing today’s “grand challenges” research. Academic libraries have reached a point at which they must fundamentally reposition themselves within the campus research enterprise. New research at the University of Calgary has identified a constellation of services and expertise that will be necessary to enable today's multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research. With support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the University of Calgary’s library undertook an evidence-based study of scholars’ needs through direct partnerships with faculty research teams in twelve competitively selected sub-grant projects. The study revealed new avenues by which libraries can become key collaborators in research. These include moving from disciplinary-based to functional, cross-disciplinary support; bringing together of digital media and analytical tools to offer a more integrated digital experience; enhancing data curation, visualization, digitization, and metadata services; providing collaborative lab spaces; and taking a partnership rather than transactional approach to working with researchers. This new paradigm will demand fundamental changes in how libraries staff, fund, and organize their operations. But there are signs that libraries are responding, redirecting their focus and energies in order to remain essential participants in research success at their institutions.
- ItemMetadata onlyTransmogrification: casual manipulation of visualizations.(ACM, 2013) Brosz, John; Nacenta, Miguel A.; Pusch, Richard; Carpendale, Sheelagh; Hurter, ChristopheA transmogrifier is a novel interface that enables quick, on-the-fly graphic transformations. A region of a graphic can be specified by a shape and transformed into a destination shape with real-time, visual feedback. Both origin and destination shapes can be circles, quadrilaterals or arbitrary shapes defined through touch. Transmogrifiers are flexible, fast and simple to create and invite use in casual InfoVis scenarios, opening the door to alternative ways of exploring and displaying existing visualizations (e.g., rectifying routes or rivers in maps), and enabling free-form prototyping of new visualizations (e.g., lenses).

- ItemOpen AccessWhat is the Future of Libraries in Academic Research(2018-12-10) Hickerson, H. Thomas; Brosz, John; Goopy, Suzanne E.Research has changed, have libraries? Research at the University of Calgary has identified a constellation of services necessary to enable today's multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research. This session will address the nature of evolving challenges and explore steps critical to the future of research libraries. With support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Libraries and Cultural Resources is seeking to instantiate a combination of services, expertise, and infrastructure through direct partnerships between library staff and scholars in a diversity of research endeavors. This research, enabled by competitive sub-grants, has ranged from providing real-time public access to arctic sensors to digitization and textual analysis of early science fiction writings to a repository for 3D scans of cultural heritage sites. This process will be examined from the perspective of the Project Coordinator, John Brosz, detailing the nature and results of direct participation by library staff in the various research projects and in the re-envisioning of library space as a constantly changing research lab. Suzanne Goopy, a social anthropologist and lead investigator in one of the funded projects, will illustrate her team's introduction of empathetic cultural mapping -- an approach that blends personal stories with population-level data. She will provide a researcher's perspective on how this experience has produced for her and her team a new understanding of the scope of library services and the opportunities for substantive collaboration. Tom Hickerson will address the critical importance of implementing a functional infrastructure and adopting a new model for the role of the library in campus research. He will describe the potential impact of this redefinition on libraries and on their continuing relevance in the research enterprise.
