Library Carpentry Workshop: Region 1 - Spring 2022

This class is no longer accepting registrations

The NNLM Region 1 is pleased to announce it will be hosting a virtual Library Carpentry workshop June 22-23, 2022.

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:

Logistics:

  • This workshop will be held via Zoom, from 9:00am – 4:00pm EST 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 the Carpentries Code of Conduct.

  • Participants will be responsible for downloading some files and software before the workshop. Setup instructions will be provided prior to the workshop.

There are 20 seats available. They will generally be awarded on a first-come-first serve basis; additional registrants will be added to a wait list if the class is full. Please only register if you are able to attend the full two days of the workshop (there will be breaks throughout the days, but learners are expected to attend for the full duration).

All participants in the virtual workshop are eligible for 14 Medical Library Association Continuing Education credits! This is thanks to the CE partnership between the NNLM and the MLA.
