April is the month to celebrate National Poetry. Why do we celebrate poetry? In the immortal words of John Keating, “we don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race.” * Its music and language express the best and worst of us and like song and rap, the artistry of poetry lies in the sound and tone of words.
Celebrate the month by reading poems aloud. You can choose from a sampling of the library’s works by American poets writing about the love, war, identity, nature, life and death, and all the humanity in between. The books are on display on the 1st floor across from the Circulation Desk. Check them out!
Also be sure to explore “Read and Return” poetry books of the Cecillia B. and Richard J. Ward Collection located on the 2nd floor overlook of the library. These titles are free to borrow without check-out.

First we will show a broad overview of what data management is and show you a tool (DMPTool) you can use to deposit your plans for managing your research data. Next we will take a look at what metadata is and play with a tool (TeX) you can use for document formatting. Last we will work with a tool (OpenRefine) which will curate your messy data and play around with theory on version controls and backlogs.
