Library Carpentry with Belinda Weaver

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

“I think training should be viewed as two-fold - helping people do their own jobs better but also thinking about which bits might be good for researchers to learn too. I would much rather see librarians teaching a tool like OpenRefine to researchers than EndNote! I think people should come along with the idea that they are helping themselves develop new skills that will help them stay employed in a highly disruptive technological environment, and that will also help researchers do more efficient, reproducible science (and thus help demonstrate the value librarians can bring to those researchers).”
