If You Love Your Data, Set it Free

If You Love Your Data, Set it Free

Every year around Valentine’s Day, universities and libraries around the world participate in Love Data Week, an effort to raise awareness related to managing, sharing, preserving, and reusing research data.

What I Didn't Know About World War I

Daily Life During World War I

When I was small, my grandparents had a console TV with a framed photo sitting on top – right about eye level to a child. In the photo my grandfather, in uniform, sat astride a huge black horse. I was told he was in the Cavalry in World War I, but I had no idea what that meant.
