News and notes for math & statistics, July 2018

Farewell and thanks! This is probably my last post on this blog. Retirement will be a new chapter for me; I’m not entirely sure what it will hold yet but I’m looking forward to finding out! I am leaving you in good hands. Cindy Traub has been named interim math subject liaison to work with your collection requests and other information needs until a permanent mathematics & statistics subject librarian has been found. So beginning in August, 2018, please contact Cindy Traub with your library concerns. Cindy has a PhD from WU Mathematics Department; she will continue her primary assignment as Data Specialist in the Data Services unit at Olin Library.

The Mathematics Geneology Project was highlighted this month in the Inside Science Resources column.

Focus on Teaching and Technology Conference, September 27 & 28, 2018 at the University of Missouri – St. Louis WU faculty and staff may register and attend FTTC at no cost because the libraries, teaching center and several other university units have contributed enough to be a “gold sponsor” of this conference. The program is available online.

New journal now available: Annual Review of Biomedical Data Science, v.1, 2018+. WU does have an online subscription to this title.
