This workshop is designed to get you familiar with Stata. We provide an overview of Stata interface and basic functions. During the session, we use datasets from international development to introduce some descriptive statistics commands and coding/recoding commands to help you gain familiarity with Stata syntax. This workshop is suitable for those who have not worked with Stata before or those seeking a refresher session. Part one and two of this workshop are a prerequisite for Data Management in Stata series.

Priority will be given to those enrolled in E213 - Econometrics. Please register in advance to ensure the workshop is not canceled due to low enrollment.

The Ginn Library invites you to a book talk

Amy Myers Jaffe

will discuss her new book

Energy's Digital Future

Harnessing Innovation for American Resilience and National Security

Energy’s Digital Future provides an expert look at the promises and challenges of the future of energy, highlighting what the United States needs to do to maintain its global influence in a post-oil era. As the United States vacillates politically about its energy trajectory, China is proactively striving to become the global frontrunner in a full-scale global energy transformation. In order to maintain its leadership role, Jaffe argues, the United States must embrace the digital revolution and foster American achievement.

“More successful students are usually very adept at managing their own personal knowledge” (Garner, 2010). But what is personal knowledge management (PKM) and what are its components? In this workshop we will review some PKM principles, review various information management tools freely available to Tufts students and share practical techniques you can apply to become a more efficient and effective knowledge worker. As part of this session we will demonstrate how to use Tufts' JumboSearch tool to personalize your collection of articles, books and reports on a topic.

“What is the best way to collect and retain information and build knowledge during one’s academic career and life?” This is a quintessential question and challenge for anyone whose work relies on creating, organizing, and using vast amounts of information (such as reading notes, research ideas, and drafts for presentations, papers, and capstones). This workshop suggests a philosophy and a technical implementation using the for-fee software “Scrivener” (student license $42). This session will review how to use it to manage information in a way that allows graduate students to focus on what matters most: creating new insights and knowledge for others.
