GLAM Lab best practices

Abstract

Come up with a repeatable, testable framework for running a lab in context of GLAM R&D

Indroduction

Research labs inside museums will become more widespread and valuable. By establishing a base level of technology competency and common language, labs and museums as a whole will be able to better share knowledge and collaborate. In the first iteration of this lab, we will leverage git, a tool for managing changing documents, and github, a website for collaborating around those documents.

Title

How to write a lab report

Abstract

Come up with a succinct, understandable set of guidlines for writing a lab report

Indroduction

This is a meta-document, we want to carefully lay out what each section does. The introduction provides necessary context to understand the rest of the report.

Materials and Methods

Materials include hardware and software Methods include knowledge and practices

Procedure

  • Create a list of what should be done, specifying order if required
  • These items should be as atomic as possible while still being clear

Results

Results are impartial observations of what happened. No conclusions should be drawn here. To get good results, record data EVERY DAY ALL DAY. Be rigorous when taking notes. Explain why you did what you did.

Discussion

Discussion is just that - its possible conclusions, interesting threads to further study. Anything fabricated.

Conclusion

Conclusion contains the most relevant interpretations that relate back to the abstract or hypothesis.
