Librarian for Research Data Management and Reproducibility
New York University
University of Washington
We will present original research about the behaviors and motivations of scholars who code, specifically how they interact with version control systems locally and on the Web. By understanding patrons through multiple lenses—daily productivity habits, motivations, and scholarly needs—library workers can tailor services for software management, curation, and long-term reuse, raising the possibility for long-term reproducibility of a multitude of scholarship. This was done as a part of the Investigating & Archiving the Scholarly Git Experience (IASGE) project.
