Help! I’m an Accidental Government Information Librarian presents... What were they thinking?! Exploring America’s voting preferences and attitudes using the American National Election Study

The Government Resources Section of the North Carolina Library Association welcomes you to a series of webinars designed to help us increase our familiarity with government information. All are welcome because government information wants to be free. In the midst of another heated presidential election cycle, we all see regular news headlines referencing who’s leading the horserace in the latest polls. Few of us, though, tend to dig any deeper to understand why our fellow Americans ultimately choose to vote (or not) the way they do. In this webinar, I’ll introduce the basics of political opinion polling, highlight some major sources, and discuss some of the pitfalls to watch out for when assessing poll results. Then, I’ll lead you through an exploration of what we can learn about Americans’ voting preferences and political attitudes using data from the American National Election Study (ANES). Funded by the NSF, the ANES is the gold standard in U.S. election polls and one of the richest sources of voting attitudes we have, with data on elections going back to 1948. We will meet together online on Thursday, July 16th from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. (Eastern). Please RSVP for the session using this link: https://tinyurl.com/grssession97 Presenters: Jeremy Darrington is the Politics Librarian at the Princeton University Library. He has a BA in international studies from Brigham Young University and graduate degrees in library and information science from the University of Washington and in political science from UC Berkeley. He is a past chair of the Politics, Policy, and International Relations Section of ACRL, and he recently received the Marta Lange/SAGE-CQ Press Award for “distinguished contributions to librarianship in political science.” Jeremy’s interests include political science data sources, European politics, information and technology policy, and government information. Jeremy is happily married and the proud father of four children. We will use Zoom for the live session. Information on testing and accessing the session will be made available when you register. The session will be recorded and available after the live session, linked from the NCLA GRS web page at https://nclaonline.org/Help!-Webinars.
