What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.

Definition of an open lens

Any member is allowed to add content to an open lens, even if the lens belongs to someone else. You can think of open lenses as lists of similar works related to the same subject, authored by various collaborating organizations or members. Content added to open lenses is reviewed for approval or deletion from the lens.

Collection Properties

Summary: These modules capture the broad array of activities conducted by vertically integrated research groups comprised of member of the Mathematics, Statistics, and Computational and Applied Mathematics departments at Rice University and supported by a VIGRE (Vertically Integrated Grants for Research and Education in the Mathematical Sciences) award from the National Science Foundation. VIGRE working groups are known as PFUGs. Pronounced like "fugue," the acronym derives from the groups' composition of Postdocs, Faculty, Undergraduates and Graduate students. The name derives from the musical meaning for fugue, "an idea that is introduced by one voice and developed by others."
