My coauthors and I submitted a manuscript on Mixed Findings in Directly Replicated Experimental Studies on Fake News, with Renee Kaufmann and Anthony Limperos. My GitHub repository, news study project, includes the R code, and some of the data, for this project.
I am writing a paper on tacit knowing, knowledge management, and open science.
I regularly teach the following four courses:
ICT 418: Linux Systems Administration
Undergraduate course covering systems administration using the Fedora
GNU/Linux operating system. Topics include Bash scripting, managing users,
installing, securing, and managing services such as MySQL, and more.
Lectures and demo scripts for this course are on GitHub: Linux Systems
ICT 420: Semantic Web Development
Undergraduate course focused on HTML5, CSS3, JSON-LD, and Git as well
as usability and accessibility. Main software tools: text editor, SFTP,
GitHub. Demo and other material for this course are on GitHub Semantic Web
LIS 617: Electronic Resource Management
Graduate course on managing electronic resources for libraries. Topics
covered include the technologies and systems involved, legal issues such as
managing copyright, contract negotiation, and more. Lectures and other
material for this course are on GitHub: Electronic
LIS/ICT 658: Knowledge Management
Graduate course on organizational knowledge management with some
emphasis on disaster and risk management and communication. Although this
is an online course, students are central in selecting specific
I regularly taught the following undergraduate course, but now
teach it mainly when I take on summer teaching.
ICT 201: Personal Knowledge Management
Undergraduate course on managing personal information and knowledge
work flows. I would share my lectures and resources for this course, but
I'm working on a major revision and will wait until that revision is
complete. Lectures and other materials for this course are on GitHub: Personal
I maintain two Linux servers for colleagues and students at my School to
support class activities. I use one dedicated server to host WordPress and
Omeka installations that support the library science and the information
and communication technologies (ICT) programs. I use a separate virtual
machine on a hosting service to provide shell and MySQL accounts to support
several courses in our undergraduate ICT program.
There are better and more complete tutorials on the web, and the R documentation is
great, but I do keep some basic notes on using R for statistics on my wiki.
Some of these notes are based on introductory presentations I've given on
R, but some were written as refreshers if I needed them. Or, one way I
learned how to use R is by replicating, in R, lessons from statistics
textbooks that used other software packages. Some of the notes below are
based on that process.
