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.
This workshop is aimed at graduate students, postdocs, and faculty 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.

PBS LearningMedia has launched a great new design of their free site. Teachers can customize the site to their own liking on a dashboard by adding favorites. Tens of thousands of resources are available, including videos (some in Spanish), images, and interactive learning objects.
This is just one of the wonderful sites listed on our Resources for Teachers research guide.
Welcome to all the educators in town for @favepoem #FavoritePoemInstitute! The library is prepared and ready for you!
Google Scholar has updated their service to highlight Classic Papers, “highly-cited papers … that have stood the test of time”.
Take a look at the Social Sciences category to find subtopics that highlight publications within education, such as the subtopics Teaching and Teacher Education (seen in the image below), Special Education, and Educational Administration.
You can read more details, including how papers were selected, from the official blog post about the release of Classic Papers.
Online, cover-to-cover, and in color, Boston University’s Center for the Humanities has generously funded our purchase of the Music Magazine Archive (MMA). These American popular music culture publications enable pinpointing of information on artists, writers, and genres, but they also stand as “real time” documents on the influences and intersections of society, music, and politics. Dates of coverage begin mid twentieth-century and continue through today.
For information regarding a particular library schedule over the holiday weekend, please consult the Hours Page or phone the library directly.
