On Tuesday, Sept. 8, the University of Maryland will launch a new university calendar that will streamline and replace the FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD calendars. Beginning Sept. 8, you will be able to submit your events to the new campus calendar for review and approval, much like the current process for FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD. On Sept. 8, if you visit this website, you will automatically be redirected to the new calendar. In addition, a new weekly email called UMD This Week will launch on Sept. 8, replacing the daily FYI email. UMD This Week will be delivered at the beginning of every week and will highlight top upcoming events. The email will include details on how to access the new calendar and how to submit events for approval. Questions? Email UMDevents@umd.edu.

Documenting Science in the Digital Age: What's the Same and What's Different
Like other forms of human knowledge, scientific knowledge is produced in particular times, places, and cultures, by a single individual or by a group of individuals. Within particular areas of investigation, people produce this knowledge by using, developing, and extending practices that are based on the loosely defined concept known as the scientific method. In this talk, a practicing archivist will describe how the University of Illinois archives is using anthropological concepts, archival practices, and digital technologies to preserve print and electronic records documenting the scientific process.
