About Access Restrictions to Electronic Resources

Access and use of electronic resources made available by the Becker Medical Library are governed by license agreements between the School of Medicine and publishers or third parties. Several of the electronic resources carry some restriction on their use. Access may be restricted by user location, number of concurrent users, and/or password.

In short, most people experience access limitations based on the network to which their computer is connected. Below is a quick breakdown of what can be accessed from various networks.

Research Computing Workshops

WUSTL's Center for High Performance Computing (CHPC) and Becker Library are offering a series of workshops aimed at introducing the basics of research computing. Check below to see what's coming up and sign up for the mailing list to be notified each time a new workshop is scheduled.

 

UPCOMING WORKSHOPS: Registration is required for all workshops. Click on the workshop titles below to register.

Introduction to Python: these workshops are geared toward researchers new to programming and Python. Each workshop starts with a 30 minute presentation covering important background information and then the remaining 90 minutes is devoted to hands-on activities. You will need to bring a laptop.

These workshops will be held in Farrell Learning and Teaching Center, Room 404, from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Feel free to register for either or both of the sessions.

Introduction to Python #1 - Getting Started with Python (7/12/19)

Goals: to develop a basic understanding of the Python programming language and to learn to run basic Python code in the interactive Python environment, Jupyter Notebook

Introduction to Python #2 - Using Python for Data Analysis (7/19/17)

Goals: to learn to write Python code to perform data analysis and visualization and to learn to run Python code in the virtual environment set up on the CHPC

 

Computing 101 series: these workshops are geared toward researchers new to the command line interface. Each workshop starts with a 30 minute presentation introducing important background concepts related to computing and then the remaining 90 minutes is devoted to hands-on activities. You will need to bring a laptop. While these workshops are geared toward beginners, all experience levels are welcome.

These workshops will be held in Farrell Learning and Teaching Center, Room 404, and will run from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM. Feel free to register for any or all of the sessions. While these workshops are focused on using the CHPC, the knowledge gained could be applied to other computing environments.

#1 Tools to Connect and Move Data & Getting Around the Linux Command Line Interface (6/14/17)

Goals: to develop a basic understanding of the tools needed to connect to the CHPC and transfer data back and forth, and become familiar with the Unix file system and basic Unix commands

Slides and handout for hands-on activities from the workshop on 2/8/17

 #2 Text Editors and Shell Scripts (6/21/17)

Goals: to gain knowledge of some of the options for text editors and learn how to write and execute basic shell scripts

Slides and handout for hands-on activities from the workshop on 2/15/17

 #3 Running Jobs on the CHPC Cluster (6/28/17)

Goal: to learn how to write and submit batch scripts to run applications on the CHPC cluster

Slides and handout for hands-on activities from the workshop on 2/22/17

PREVIOUS WORKSHOPS:

Running MATLAB on the CHPC Using the Distributed Computing Server (3/9/2017)

This hands-on workshop, focused on using MALTAB on the CHPC cluster, will be led by a Field Application Scientist from MathWorks. The topics to be discussed include: best practices in writing portable code, parallelization, and new MATLAB features. The session will start with a 30 minute presentation, immediately followed by 90 minutes of hands-on activities. This workshop will occur in Farrell Learning and Teaching Center, Room 214, and will run from 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM.

Attendees will need to: 

  • Bring a laptop that has MATLAB (>=R2014a) with the parallel toolkit installed on it (type 'ver' at the command prompt to see installed toolkits)
  • Have an account on the CHPC cluster (if you don't have a CHPC account, you can request one using this online form

The workshop slides and hands-on activities are posted on the CHPC MATLAB page
