Presented at the Research Support Community day 2018 by Sharron Stapleton (Research Data Librarian, QUT) and Matthias Liffers (Library Manager, Science, University of Western Australia)
Library Carpentry is software and data skills training aimed at the needs and requirements of library professionals. Library Carpentry is made by librarians, for librarians to help:
• 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 (Library Carpentry, 2017)
This session introduced the Carpentries’ community learning model and present case studies where learning some basic computational skills has saved considerable time and effort in the work of librarians.
