Online Library Carpentry Workshop Opportunity: March 25th – 26th

Posted by on March 4th, 2021 Posted in: Data Science, Research Data Management

The NNLM SEA is pleased to host an online Library Carpentry workshop on March 25th – 26th 2021.

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. Biomedical and health sciences librarians and LIS students are encouraged to participate.

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


  • This workshop will be held via Zoom, from 9 am – 5:00 pm ET each day.
  • Participants must have access to a computer (no tablets or Chromebooks) with Windows, Mac, or Linux operating system and an internet connection that can support a Zoom video meeting.
  • Participants must agree to follow theCarpentries Code of Conduct.
  • Participants will be responsible for downloading some files and software before the workshop. Setup instructions will be provided.

To apply, please complete the NNLM SEA Library Carpentry application.

There are 20 seats available. They will generally be awarded on a first-come-first serve basis, but applicants from organizations in the Southeastern Atlantic region of the NNLM will be prioritized.

Notice of acceptance to the workshop will be announced on Monday, March 21st.
