SHU Data Services Joined Petersheim Exposition

SHU Data Services is excited to announce its contributions to the 25th edition of the Petersheim Academic Exposition.

On April 26th, Chelsea Barrett, along with other library faculty, led a presentation on library research support during the COVID-19 pandemic. This presentation included two testimonials of students that recently utilized Data Services consultations to facilitate their research. One of the students, a Ph.D. candidate in Health Sciences, noted that Data Services “has been helping me step by step…[making] the research journey (particularly the data analysis part) for Ph.D. students like myself, less intimidating/stressful, more enjoyable and even more exciting.”

Following this presentation, Lisa DeLuca and Luisa Chainferber also presented on Humanitarian Mapping at Seton Hall. In this presentation, the Data Services team covered how students and faculty can take advantage of humanitarian mapping opportunities to gain community service hours as well as a leisure activity. Additionally, the presentation covered the process to set up a HOT account with OpenStreetMap, mapping instructions, and information on the characteristics and use cases of GIS data.

Lastly, the SHU Data Services team offered a PowerBI workshop on how to take your report to the next level on April 28th. In this workshop, Luisa Chainferber covered how to create visuals in PowerBI, how to add a custom background, how to add and hide data filters, and how to connect multiple pages of a report. Through these steps, participants learned how to create more user-friendly and interactive reports.

SHU Data Services is now looking forward to the next edition of Petersheim. To access any recordings or presentation materials from this year, please contact
