  "abstract": "<p><strong>Nearly all academics use research software and 69% say their research wouldn&rsquo;t be practical without it. As the use of technology in research increases, libraries have a new and essential role to play.</strong></p>\n\n<p>With appropriate training, libraries can effectively support the data science needs of their researchers. This is critical for the development of Open Science (as highlighted in the&nbsp;report of the European Commission&rsquo;s&nbsp;<a href=\"\">Open Science Skills Working Group</a>).&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>This webinar, hosted by&nbsp;<em>Birgit Schmidt</em>&nbsp;of LIBER&rsquo;s&nbsp;<a href=\"\">Research Data Management Working Group</a>, featured&nbsp;speaker&nbsp;<em>Christopher Erdmann</em>. He introduced&nbsp;<em>The Carpentries</em>: a non-profit organisation that trains people in software development and data science skills. One branch of this organisation,&nbsp;<em>Library Carpentry</em>, is focused on the needs of libraries. Chris spoke&nbsp;about the concept of Library Carpentry: what is taught, why and how, the impact it&rsquo;s having, and what&rsquo;s next.</p>\n\n<p>We also heard from&nbsp;<em>Juliane Schneider</em>, a Carpentries trainer, and <em>David Kane</em>, a systems library at the Waterford Institute of Technology. They spoke about the process for, and benefits of, becoming a Library Carpentry instructor.&nbsp;</p>",
