Applications Open for Library Carpentry Workshops in Baltimore and Salt Lake City!

Posted by on December 5th, 2019 Posted in: Continuing Education, Data Science, Funding


The NNLM Training Office (NTO) and Southeastern Atlantic Region (SEA) are pleased to host Library Carpentry workshops this spring and provide professional development funds to support travel to these exciting opportunities.

Library Carpentry 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 researchers and enable data-driven discovery. Even those with some experience will 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. Biomedical and health sciences librarians and LIS students are encouraged to participate.

In this two-day interactive, hands-on workshop you will learn core software and data skills, with lessons including:

Participants may apply to attend the workshop series in either:

  • Baltimore, Maryland – March 19-20, 2020 or
  • Salt Lake City, Utah – March 26-27, 2020
