Karen and I will be presenting together again at Code4Lib. Our talk, “Cupper and Leecher, Tinman and Shrimp Fiend: Data Science Tools for Examining Historical Occupation Data,” will be held on March 9. You can read our abstract here: https://2020.code4lib.org/talks/Cupper-and-leecher-tinman-and-shrimp-fiend-Data-science-tools-for-examining-historical-occupation-data

I’ll post our Code4Lib slides after we give the talk. 
LEADS has been a wonderful experience, and I’m glad to be able to talk about it to others. Hopefully the lessons from Karen and my experiences will inform another year of work on the HSP project. There’s a lot more to do, but the end results will be useful for a wide audience.

Topic: CiteSpace: Research Metrics and Analytics
Abstract: CiteSpace is a visual analytic and science mapping tool for visualizing various trends and patterns in the literature of scholarly publications across a wide range of research disciplines. CiteSpace is designed to produce interactive visualizations of various networks and facilitate systematic scientometric reviews. I will introduce the key concepts and theories behind CiteSpace with exemplars of studies enabled by CiteSpace and demonstrate the core workflows of working with CiteSpace.
