Working with international artists and designers Maja Kuzmanovic and Nik Gaffney of FoAM, the Desert Humanities initiative at ASU is hosting a desert ecology listening salon at Hayden Library.

Kuzmanovic and Gaffney traveled the desert in two years of site visits with ASU’s D.A.R.E. team collecting artifacts and sounds. From these experiences, they have created a desert sounds vinyl album and series of accompanying images for the salon. Further books, maps and images are supplied by the Hayden Library and its archives. 

Thanks goes to the Global Institute of Sustainability, the Institute for Humanities Research and the Center for Philosophical Technologies for assisting in funding this initial salon, and thanks to Hayden Library and its dedicated staff for space and creative research.

An opening reception will be held at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 23, and the salon will run through Dec. 7 in the Hayden Library.

As a researcher, having an online presence can provide a number of benefits. Part of the Graduate Scholars Toolkit, this one-hour workshop will teach you how to establish and manage your scholarly identity using tools such as ORCID, connect with colleagues, find collaborators and expose your research to new audiences. You'll also learn how to boost your scholarly impact using social media and alternative metrics that come with new methods of knowledge communication and online dissemination.

The Graduate Scholars Toolkit workshop series is a way for ASU students to connect with the tools and information they need to succeed in graduate school. Workshops are offered on all campuses at various times throughout the semester, with more online offerings to come.

Join the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub for this one-hour workshop on how to access historical (and contemporary) topographic maps produced by the United States Geological Survey (USGS), going as far back as 1884.

Participants will learn about the various web platforms used for hosting and distributing free, publicly accessible topographic maps available in various digital, georeferenced file formats. Emphasis will be placed on using TopoView -- the best, easiest-to-use source of USGS topographic maps.

Workshop attendees will then learn how to import and use the scanned map images in a geographic information system (GIS) software platform with other types of GIS layers.

This workshop assumes no previous experience with GIS.

Non-ASU affiliates (members of the general public) are welcome to attend. Priority seating will be given to ASU affiliates (students, faculty, staff, alumni).

Twenty computer workstations are available in the lab (Noble Library, Room 105). Alternatively, workshop participants may opt to bring their own laptop. A maximum of 40 total participants may attend. Those bringing their own laptops will need to pre-install the following free software applications:

Inspired by maps, this art exhibition explores the interconnections and contrasts between "Old and New."

Students in Ellen Meissinger’s Art on Paper class within the School of Art, part of the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, collaborated with the ASU Library's Map and Geospatial Hub to create an art exhibition inspired by creating unique art pieces on maps. This is the sixth year for this exciting interdisciplinary collaboration between the School of Art and the Map and Geospatial Hub.

The "Old and New" exhibit can be viewed during Map and Geospatial Hub open hours, Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m (closed on university holidays). No registration required. 

The exhibit reception is set to take place from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., Nov. 26.

Presented by the ASU Library Unit for Data Science and Analytics, this workshop will cover how to identify a suitable algorithm and/or modeling technique that is appropriate to the data and problem statement. Pros and cons of various methods will be reviewed and appropriate applications to use will be explored (e.g., supervised vs. unsupervised learning, linear vs. nonlinear regression and normal v. non-normal distributions).

This workshop coincides with the weekly data science Open Lab event, every Wednesday, from 10 a.m. to noon, for beginniners, and 1 to 3 p.m., for more advanced participants. Open Lab is a way to get connected with ongoing and available projects that engage maching learning, data visualization, text and data mining, network analysis and more.
