The Data Science and Visualization Institute for Librarians is a week-long course providing the opportunity for librarians passionate about research and scholarship to immerse themselves in learning about data science and visualization in collaboration with academic peers. Participants will develop knowledge, skills, and confidence to communicate effectively with faculty and student researchers about their data and be able to provide initial consultancy on the course topics. Led by expert instructors, sessions will be interactive and will focus on mastery of core concepts, with hands-on exposure to select open source and highly used commercial tools. Sharing of practices and experiences across institutions will be encouraged.

A final schedule will be available in early December,  including topics such as:

  • Data Exploration and Statistical Analysis
  • Bibliometric Analysis
  • Data Visualization
  • Version Control with Git and GitHub
  • Data Description, Sharing, and Reuse
  • Data Cleaning and Preparation
  • Web scraping
  • Analyzing Textual Data
  • Mapping and Geospatial Visualization
  • Publisher and Funder Data Use Agreements
