The NNLM Training Office is pleased to announce a new opportunity for information professionals to build data skills through online Library Carpentry workshops, at no cost to participants.

Library Carpentry<https://librarycarpentry.org/about/> focuses on building software and data skills within library and information-related communities. Their goal is to empower people in these roles to use software and data in their own work and to become advocates for and train others in efficient, effective and reproducible data and software practices.

The target audience is learners who have little to no prior computational experience. The instructors put a priority on creating a friendly environment to empower participants and enable data-driven discovery. Those with some experience will also benefit, as the goal is to teach not only how to do analyses, but how to manage the process to make it as automated and reproducible as possible. To see some great examples of how you might use and apply these new skills, check out LibraryCarpentry.org. <https://librarycarpentry.org/audience/>

In addition to participating in Library Carpentry workshops, NNLM members will also have the opportunity to receive training to become instructors<https://librarycarpentry.org/get_involved/#Host> for Library Carpentry.

To learn more about these opportunities, we invite you to attend an informational session hosted by members of the Library Carpentry community, and The Carpentries Executive Director, Dr. Kari L. Jordan.

Join NTO Thursday, October 8, 2020 at 11AM Pacific / 12PM Mountain/ 1PM Central/ 2 PM Eastern.

Register here<https://nnlm.gov/class/library-carpentry-workshop-information-session/27637> for the session. Session recording will be distributed to all registrants.
