Feedback form is now closed.
Data science skills for cleaning, manipulating, analyzing and formatting data are important for staff throughout libraries & archives, but they are often difficult to build and maintain without support. How do we quickly skill up library staff when professional development budgets are often lacking and we lack a support system at our individual institutions? We addressed this question by creating the New England Library Carpentry Consortium (NESCLiC), which consists of nine academic libraries who joined forces in 2017 to share the cost and benefits of a membership with The Carpentries. The Carpentries provide pedagogical training, administrative support, and instructional materials on a wide variety of data science topics. This presentation will walk through the history of NESCLiC, highlight successes and struggles, provide tips to bring back to your institution, and give a taste to the type of instruction we provide to our library staff.
