Minglu Wang's picture

I am currently a Data Services Librarian at John Cotton Dana Library of Rutgers University, Newark Campus. I teach workshops on how to use different statistical software packages, Nvivo, and Mapping Census data; I help individual faculty or graduate students solve their data analysis problems, provide consulting on data management, and conducts data analysis and visualization for faculty, research centers, and other departments on the Rutgers-Newark campus. 

I am writing about my own practices in the field of library data service, for example, design and implementation of library data services programs, teaching statistical software, and data management training and consulting services. I am interested in studying e-Science, scholar communication, information literacy, and international scholars/students, especially aspects that are related to library and digital library services.
