Data science initiatives are sweeping through higher education in response to a growing demand from industry for job candidates with these skills and for the potential of advancing research across multiple disciplines. A number of recent reports, including an IMLS funded report titled "Shifting to Data Savvy: The Future of Data Science In Libraries", have highlighted opportunities and challenges libraries face to support data science activities in their communities. Out of the recommendations that have been put forward, The Carpentries, an initiative that teaches foundational coding and data science skills to researchers and librarians worldwide, has been identified as one of the more promising opportunities for libraries to explore. This talk will discuss several reports including the IMLS funded report and describe how The Carpentries can be leveraged by libraries to respond to the growing need for data science services and support at their organizations.
