dSHARP and Data CoLab Virtual Consulting Sessions

dSHARP and the Data CoLab are taking their Wednesday afternoon Open Office/Open Consulting hours virtual for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester.
On Wednesdays, beginning March 18 and running through April 29, 2020, we will be using Zoom and Slack to hold open consulting sessions between 1 – 4 pm EST.

We offer a shared text chat space at the main room: https://cmu.zoom.us/j/238160149 to contact the group and begin the discussion. We can and then create “breakout rooms” for small group/1-on-1 consults (with video/audio/screensharing) as needed.

We also offer the public Slack channel to the CMU community: #virtual_consult
We will monitor the channel and respond as possible Monday through Friday, typically 10 am – 3 pm.
As a reminder: dSHARP office hours are informal consultations with library experts in all things digital- and data-related.

This could be learning how to use command line; familiarization with GitHub; an introduction to the wide array of data visualization, GIS, text analysis, and data mining research methods available; using WordPress, Omeka, or another platform to digitally publish; or a brief consultation about a specific research or pedagogical project.

Along with the Data CoLab group, we are often joined by library professionals with data curation, digitization, metadata, and scholarly communications expertise including using CMU’s institutional repository, KiltHub.
