Library Carpentry focuses on building software and data skills within library and information-related communities. Their hands-on, approachable workshops empower people in a variety of roles to use software and data in their own work and support effective, efficient, reproducible practices. Learn more about Library Carpentry on their website.
The Library Carpentry workshop is broken into four lessons: Workshop Overview, Introduction to Working with Data (Regular Expressions), The UNIX Shell, Open Refine, and Introduction to Git. You can learn more about the lessons on their website.
Library Carpentry Learning Objectives:
The Library Carpentry workshops are open to all, and the training will focus on skills for library workers. We encourage anyone interested in Library Carpentry skills to register, no prior knowledge is needed. We will prioritize registration from Region 5 states (Alaska, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and U.S. Territories and Freely Associated States); however, if we are not able to fill all 25 spots with Region 5 participants we will be accepting non-Region 5 registrants on a first come first serve basis.
