Science Bootcamp LogoThis is the introductory blog post in a series about the 2018 Science Boot Camp for Librarians held at Brandeis University on June 13-15, 2018. In the next few weeks we will feature several individual’s reflections of the science boot camp. These are authored by people who received scholarships to attend the 2018 Science Boot Camp. 2018 marks the 10th anniversary of this amazing event. This year’s topics featured ecology, genetics, and materials science. Over the past 10 years 33 different science topics have been featured and 10 different capstone presentations have been given. This year’s capstone featured how to evaluate the quality of journals and data sets. Over the last 10 years there have been about 564 attendees, 39 organizers, and over 25 scholarships granted to new librarians. Boot Camp has shown to be a good economical way to meet people, learn new ideas, and have fun. If you were not able to attend, information about this year’s educational topics, capstone, dinner talk about retraction, and prior years videos can be found in the Resource Section of Science Boot Camp web page http://guides.library.umass.edu/sciboot18/resources.

We hope to see you next year!
