In June 1968 Senator Richard Russell discovered that the dissent he presented at the last executive session of the Warren Commission, the body assembled to investigate the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and references to the debate it prompted were not included in the official records at the National Archives. Join us for a conversation with three senior aides to the Senator who worked in his Washington office in the 1960s as they explore Russell's service as a member of the famed commission, the reasons for his dissent, and his reaction to the exclusion of that dissent from the official record. A light reception will follow the program. For more information contact Jan Hebbard at 706-542-5788.

Spencer Roberts - Digital Scholarship Librarian, Georgia State University

In this presentation, Spencer Roberts will discuss the opportunities and challenges encountered in the Student Innovation Fellowship at Georgia State University, which employs undergraduate and graduate students to work on digital projects across many disciplines. The program provides a unique opportunity for students to learn and improve their technology and project management skills while partnering on research projects led by students, faculty, and staff. Projects with SIF involvement include ATLMaps, Unpacking Manuel’s Tavern, 3D Atlanta, and many more.

 

The University of Georgia will host its second annual GIS Day@UGA to showcase how students and faculty use geographic information system (GIS) technology to visualize, analyze and interpret data in teaching, research and outreach. The event will feature a keynote panel, lightning talks on real-world GIS applications, drone demonstrations, information on internship opportunities, and booths highlighting projects from diverse departments and organizations around campus and the local community. Light snacks and interactive activities will also be provided.

GIS Day@UGA is free and open to the public; all events will take place in the Main Library. Students, faculty, and staff who are interested in learning more about GIS and resources at UGA for spatial analysis are especially encouraged to attend.
