E302 – Dealing With Data: From Research to Visualization

Wednesday, April 9, 2014
11:30 AM – 12:15 PM
, Digital Initiatives, Cataloguing & Metadata Services Librarian, Alma Jordan Library, The University of the West Indies
, Professor of Family Therapy and Director of the Graduate Certificate in Qualitative Research Program, Nova Southeastern University
, Public Services Librarian, LAC Group on assignment at the NOAA Central Library

The first presentation looks at the steps involved in research and the latest technology tools and apps available for researchers to utilize at each stage of the process: mobile and cloud-based apps allowing researchers to blur the traditional divides between the field and the lab and between the researcher and the participant, all while shortening the time it takes to conduct research, and tools or apps (web-based or device specific) that can assist in the tasks of analyzing, data gathering, and reporting. These apps include note-taking or productivity (EndNote, inScribe, MobileNoter), visualization and conceptualization tools (SimpleMind, MagicalPad, Min- domo, Popplet), online collaboration (itracks Mobile, GRID), data gathering and analysis (Nativeye, EthnoHub), multime- dia capabilities for recording audio and capturing video (CaptureNotes, SenseMaker, TagPad), and data organization and cloud storage (Dropbox, Mendeley Reference Manager). The second presentation focuses on effectively summarizing large and often complex data. Visualization is a powerful method of conveying large amounts of information in a user-friendly format. Hear about some of the techniques and open source software tools that you can use to create graphs, charts, maps, and network graphics that are accurate, informative, and visually compelling.
