Library Carpentry: Introduction to Data Workshop, Waterford February 2018

Library Carpentry is software and data skills training aimed at the needs and requirements of library professionals. Training takes place in face-to-face workshops where one or more of the ‘stable’ lessons are taught. Lessons are also made available online (CC BY, published via GitHub Pages) for self-directed study or for adaptation and reuse by library professionals. The lessons have been developed by the Library Carpentry community and delivered around the world.

Library Carpentry is made by librarians, for librarians to help you:
• automate repetitive, boring, error-prone tasks
• create, maintain and analyse sustainable and reusable data
• work effectively with IT and systems colleagues
• better understand the use of software in research

The LIR Group plans to run a series of the Library Carpentry workshops with the first one "Introduction to Data" planned for February 2018 in Waterford.

If you are interested in getting involved with Library Carpentry either as an instructor or participlant, contact Breeda Herlihy, UCC Library or David Kane, WIT Library, for more information.
