Presentation Open Access
Library Carpentry is an open education volunteer network and lesson organization dedicated to teaching librarians data and software skills. The goal is to help librarians better engage with constituents and improve how they do their work. This talk will serve as an introduction on how Library Carpentry formed in 2015, evolved as a global community of library professionals and will continue as a future sibling of the Carpentries, an umbrella organization of distinct lesson organizations, such as Data and Software Carpentry. We’ll cover existing collaborative lesson development, curricula coverage, workshop activities and the global instructor community. We’ll then talk about the future coordinating activities led by the UC system to align and prepare for a merging with Data and Software Carpentry.
