ThinkSpace Exhibition: From 24th June until 5th July 2019
Life on the Margins is a photographic exhibition that documents the precariousness of life in the vast, desolate landscapes of Namibia, and the effects of drought on an already arid land.
Incorporating images captured on her recent overland
tour through that country, Antonia Mocatta presents a glimpse into existence in its truly harsh environments.
The images not only convey the splendour of the immense vistas, but a sense of
foreboding that with the onset of climate change, scenes such as these may
become all too familiar elsewhere in the world.
Join us for our Meet the Photographer Event
Come along and meet Antonia as she details stories of her travels through Namibia and talks about her photography process.
HDRs – On Monday 29 October, join us for a day of expert knowledge sharing, discussions, and some inter-activity. Sessions will focus on the use of tools for productivity, organisation and research, and how we can use these things to create a helpful digital flow. The day will be run in 3 segments:
How to HDR: Wrangling your Digital Workflow Time: 1pm – 3pm
To kick the day’s festivities off, this How to HDR session will focus on ways that you can control your digital workflow so that you can stay on top of it and have it serve you – not the other way around. Of course, there will be our famous pizza to conclude. We did mention festivities, didn’t we? It would be rude for us not to deliver.
How to Work with Research Data Time: 3pm – 4pm
Not sure what tools to use to manage your research data? Not sure who to contact? Come along and meet with research data support staff from the Digital Curation and Data Team and the Research Data Consulting (Sydney Informatics Hub). Learn about data support services available across the University as well as platforms and tools to help you effectively manage your research data.
QuickBites: How to Avoid Digital Chaos Live streamed in ThinkSpace Time: 4:15pm – 4:45pm
We’ll discuss the ability to manage data and evidence to formulate a critical argument, identifying evidence and secondary material that supports independent research projects, management and using large amounts of secondary material, and how to distinguish vital evidence from large amounts of primary sources.
Join us for a series of events (with tea, coffee and cakes) celebrating Open Access Week 2017 at the University of Sydney Library!
We are holding talks, drop-in sessions and social events from 23 to 27 October celebrating open access good news stories at Sydney University, and also looking at the ways that open access impacts research, education and publishing.
We have lined up a number of speakers to discuss copyright, open access publishing, open data and open education. At the drop-in sessions you can ask for advice and set up your ORCID profile. We will also be holding an ‘orange’ themed morning tea! So dig out some orange clothing and join in.
Open in order to…
The theme for this year’s 10th International Open Access Week “Open in order to…” focuses on the benefits of open access for scholarship, education, policy and practice. So, what does “Open in order to…” conjure up in your mind? Why not come along to an event or two during Open Access Week and learn what we’re “Open to…
Open-access publishing and preprint servers are growing in popularity among biologists. I will provide an overview of the different preprint servers that are available for the biological sciences, and the costs and options for open-access publishing for different types of research papers.
Is an open access model right for your next book? Join us to explore the pros and cons of OA book publishing, and to find out what questions authors should ask when choosing a publishing path for their work.
