1,000 Documents Added to the MU Extension Collection in MOspace

Since the beginning of 2020, Mizzou Libraries’ Digital Services department has added 1,040 MU Extension publications to MOspace, the University of Missouri System institutional repository. These include historical and current publications. We digitized older publications, dating back to 1915 — “Reducing waste in feeding hay” — and added publications from the MU Extension website through 2019.

Extension publications cover a variety of topics including farming, farm animals, gardening, clothing tips, healthy diets and managing a club. Here are two to get you started in your exploration of the collection.

For hobbyists, learn about braided rugs, sewed rugs, crocheted rugs, woven rugs, knitted rugs and hooked rugs.

This publication gives us a reminder that in the past the United States has discussed plans to adopt the metric system. As noted in the publication:

“By the time 1980 rolls around … the United States will be well on its way to adopting the International Standard of Units or, as it is more commonly referred to, the metric system. The International System of Units was formally adopted by the countries of the world in 1960. This system has six standard units from which all measurement can be derived. These six units are: meter (m) … kilogram (kg) … second (s) … degree Kelvin … ampere (amp) … candela (cd).”–First page.

Note: For many topics, particularly those related to farming, gardening and food, always check the MU Extension website for current information.

 

home Gateway Carousel, Resources and Services Start Using the #CampusClear App Today

Start Using the #CampusClear App Today

At the Mizzou Libraries, we are concerned about the health and safety of our Tiger community. Part of that effort is creating a culture of awareness by requiring faculty, staff and students to monitor their health daily. The practice is also recommended for visitors. Now, self-monitoring is made easier with #CampusClear.

#CampusClear is a self-screening mobile application designed to support campus community members as they monitor their day-to-day health and respond to potential COVID-19 symptoms. #CampusClear provides a daily push notification and self-monitoring only takes a few seconds. The app will also act as a pass to provide students, faculty and staff access to designated locations in the future.

To sign up:

  1. Access the app on the App Store, Google Play or via the web.
  2. Indicate if you are a student, an employee or a visitor. Faculty, staff and students should use their university email address to automatically register with the university. No other contact information is needed.
  3. Visitors will be asked to select the school they wish to visit and may provide either their phone number or personal email address to sign in.
  4. Users will be asked to finish authentication via the email they provided for registration.

You can find out more about available study rooms in Ellis Library at:

home Government Information Mizzou Librarian Co-Authors Award-Winning Report on Preservation of Government Information

Mizzou Librarian Co-Authors Award-Winning Report on Preservation of Government Information

In the pre-internet age, most government information was distributed through the U.S. Government Printing Office, and public and college libraries throughout the United States were responsible for providing public access to that information.Today, most government information intended for public distribution is posted directly to the internet. Publication patterns in this digital environment are not as predictable, and the responsibility for preserving information has become considerably more unclear. Today historians who seek information in libraries sometimes learn that information, which was once available on a government website, was deleted before it could be saved.

To study the extent of this problem and help propose solutions, the University of Missouri Libraries joined a small group of libraries led by Martin Halbert and Robbie Sittel of the University of North Texas to form the PEGI (Preservation of Government Information) Project. Funded by an Institute of Museum and Library Services grant, PEGI worked for two years, meeting with government agency representatives, industry leaders, library administrators and others to define the scope of the problem and chart pathways forward. The University of Missouri Libraries are proud to have been part of the founding PEGI Project team (link: https://www.pegiproject.org/project-team). 

The final report “Toward a Shared Agenda: Report on PEGI Project Activities for 2017-2019” received the Margaret T. Lane/ Virginia F. Saunders Memorial Research Award. This award is given annually to an author or shared among collaborative authors of an outstanding research article in which government documents, either published or archival in nature, form a substantial part of the documented research. University of Missouri librarian Marie Concannon was a co-author on this report.

Upcoming Workshops: Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry

University of Missouri Libraries is hosting a series* of Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry workshops online for Fall 2020. These hands-on workshops will focus on basic concepts and skills to help researchers perform their work in less time and with less pain with code (Python or R), version control, data management, and task automation. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems. Pre-registration is required.

Specific tools covered (no prior experience necessary) will be:

  • Unix shell
  • Git
  • Python
  • R
  • OpenRefine

*Scheduling note: a full Software Carpentry workshop is usually 2 days face-to-face, covering Shell, Git, and Python or R. We have temporarily moved these workshops online and have separated the lessons into shorter, weekly afternoon sessions. To receive the content equivalent to a full workshop, please register for a session of each lesson (Shell, Git, and Python or R) from the workshop calendar. More detailed scheduling information is available on each workshop registration page.

Please visit https://libcal.missouri.edu/calendar/workshops/?cid=35&ct=48115 for dates, information, and registration.
