Gender disparities in computer science authorship persist as a significant challenge in academia. Our project involves creating a data visualization website to highlight the gender gap in computer science research. We discovered that women represent a mere 21.9% of published papers. Additionally, women constitute only 25% of full-time professors and earn just 80% of what their male counterparts make. By presenting engaging data visualizations and employing a predictive algorithm, our website sheds light on the future gender gap. This project empowers others by raising awareness and facilitating informed actions to combat gender disparities in computer science
Understanding how to use an integrated library system, Koha to automate the library services of a targeted tribal library to better organize their collection and provide an easy and accessible services to their patrons. In addition to informing the stakeholder what Koha can do for them, learning their needs and expectations to ensure that the system is suitable to their needs is also the aim of the project.
The Humanalyst platform gives individuals access to the latest data and insights from organizational science, empowering them to thrive in a safe, supportive, and nurturing workplace. After recognizing the market's lack of free resources for individuals to evaluate work well-being, Humanalyst provides an easy-to-use psychometric evaluation to help workplaces and employees assess job satisfaction and well-being. Eventually, Humanalyst aims to democratize access to employee experience tools and data in order to make work work for everyone.
Cybersecurity is a field that has seen an incredible amount of growth in the last decade. PenSec is an educational platform for students and small businesses looking to expand their knowledge within cybersecurity, more specifically within penetration testing. While most people are aware of the implications a weak cybersecurity infrastructure can have, they are unaware of where to begin. Through PenSec, we aim to allow people to gain an insight into penetration testing and provide them with resources to further their interest in cybersecurity.
The Covid-19 pandemic has shown the importance of making museum materials accessible to the public via the internet. While photographs are useful for this purpose, 3D models create unique opportunities to view objects from all angles. The goal for this project was to create an online toolkit that includes all the information a small cultural heritage institution needs to create 3D models of their objects and make them available online. In this way, cultural heritage institutions will be able to create more dynamic online exhibits, invite guests to see objects in new ways, preserve more fragile artifacts, and more.
The initial concept of this project was to create the proposition for a web-based timeline of the Book Arts movement. In doing data collection, I realized that I had taken for granted Sandra as a storyteller, and it would benefit all students, particularly MLIS students, to have access to this indefinitely. Therefore, I have an additional timeline format to propose for the future; a living book, which would outlast all those involved in creating it. Based on my hometown’s “Hear, Here” system, it would preserve not only the content of Sandra’s knowledge but her way of sharing it through storytelling.

One of the most challenging topics in healthcare today is thinking about the impact of AI. This project centered on developing accessible teaching material using an anti-bias and equity lens. The crux of the challenge was creating content that spoke to Faculty, C-Suite decision makers and clinicians. Unfortunately, expertise is often siloed across these groups leading to negative outsized impacts. The key take-way was demonstrating the importance of expertise and demographic diversity across the data provenance pipeline in order to achieve more equitable healthcare outcomes. This collaborative work will continue towards making healthcare AI models more accessible and transparent.
In Argentina, the growing stray dog and cat population challenges animal shelters facing limited funding, organization, and volunteer support. To tackle this issue, we partnered with Vinoly, an Argentine tech-consulting firm, to develop three innovative solutions. First, a resource guide outlining efficient shelter organization based on successful U.S. models. Second, a landing page for Vinoly. Lastly, a platform fostering connections between shelters and volunteers. By implementing these strategies, Paws Print aims to substantially enhance animal welfare in Argentina over the long term, remaining committed to creating a lasting, positive impact on the lives of these vulnerable animals.
This OER program design will consist of information literacy workshops that can be used to supplement US undergraduate core curricula, as well as provide academic librarians with teaching opportunities. They can be offered at any institution using the materials provided by the program to seamlessly fit within a variety of core curricula. The first workshop addresses the problem of personal data privacy literacy awareness amongst college students, providing them with foundational knowledge of the personal data privacy landscape. The project will make a difference in students’ day-to-day lives as they manage and navigate their own personal data privacy literacy journeys.
