Library Carpentry Workshop

Library Carpentry is made by librarians, for librarians to help you:

  • automate repetitive, boring, error-prone tasks
  • create, maintain and analyse sustainable and reusable data
  • work effectively with IT and systems colleagues
  • better understand the use of software in research
  • and much more...

Library Carpentry introduces you to the fundamentals of computing and provides you with a platform for further self-directed learning. For more information on what we teach and why, please see our paper "Library Carpentry: software skills training for library professionals".

For this 2-day workshop, we will teach lessons on 'Tidy Data', OpenRefine, UNIX Shell, and Python (more information is available here: https://nesclic.github.io/2018-08-15-YUL/). 

Who: The course is for librarians, archivists, and other information workers (all library staff is welcome). You don't need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a 2-day workshop (8/15-8/16), registration for this event includes both days.
