GIS Day is a global event to educate people about how geography makes a difference in our lives using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology.
To celebrate GIS Day, the Library's Geospatial Centre and Mapping, Analysis and Design will be hosting an afternoon of activities and refreshments in the Flex Lab (LIB 329) and at the Geospatial Centre in the Dana Porter Library. Everyone is welcome to attend!
Student Library Ambassador Gajani wants to raise awareness of the
Waterloo Reads Collection. Visit her table with pictures of book covers from the Waterloo Reads collection, choose your favourite book and glue it together to form a collage, or use blank paper to add your own favourite read to the collage.
Take your literature review one step further. This workshop is geared towards graduate students and researchers who wish to conduct a systematic review for either a thesis, coursework or journal publication. A ‘systematic review’, as opposed to a traditional literature review, uses a structured methodology to answer a focused research question. It is transparent, reproducible, and involves an exhaustive search of the literature using explicit criteria for study selection. By the end of this workshop you will have gained an understanding of systematic review methods in the social sciences and the components of a systematic search. Both Jackie Stapleton and Sarah Brown have extensive experience as collaborators on systematic review research teams and will be drawing directly from their experiences for this presentation.
