Average number of attendees by session
The University Library’s Research Data Services (RDS) Team provided over 50 workshops for students, faculty, and staff over the last academic year, with a total of 320 attendees. They also conducted custom sessions for graduate students (152 total attendees) as well as custom sessions for the GSU College of Education & Human Development faculty and a research team comprised of GSU African American Studies and Clark Atlanta University faculty, reaching a grand total of 481 people. RDS Team Leader Mandy Swygart-Hobaugh has recently published a “data story” on Tableau Public about their successful workshops, custom sessions, and consultations over the last year. Nice job!
The Library’s Research Data Services (RDS) Team supports research projects and learning across multiple disciplines involving quantitative, qualitative, business, and spatial/GIS data. We collaborate with and advise Georgia State University’s researchers across the entire research lifecycle, including accessing and using unique data, using data analysis software, managing data, and sharing data for reuse by other researchers. Find out more about our specific services at http://library.gsu.edu/data.
In our inaugural year (FY17), the Research Data Services Team, led by Mandy Swygart-Hobaugh, provided over 250 consultations to Georgia State University’s researchers. Check out some statistics and visualizations, generated here by Mandy in Tableau from the data we logged for our research data services (RDS) consultations, which illustrate the breadth and depth of our experiences during our inaugural year.
Bill Gates and representatives from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation visited Georgia State University and CURVE on June 12 to learn more about how Georgia State has leveraged technology and data to eliminate achievement gaps and become a national model for student success. Gates spoke with Dr. Timothy Renick, vice provost and vice president for enrollment management and student success, Dr. Allison Calhoun-Brown, associate vice president for student success, and a group of students and recent graduates who shared their success stories.

On April 12, students in Dr. Carmen Eilertson’s Biology 4687/6687 Surgical Anatomy demonstrated some of the 3D models of human organs they have created this semester using the NextEngine laser scanner in CURVE’s 3D Modeling Lab. Here, they are presenting 3D models of a human kidney, brain, and lung.
This was followed by a lesson in understanding computerized tomography (CT) scans, which the interactWall can display in amazing detail for up-close analysis.
