    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Nearly all academics use research software and 69% say their research wouldn&amp;rsquo;t be practical without it. As the use of technology in research increases, libraries have a new and essential role to play.&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;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&amp;nbsp;report of the European Commission&amp;rsquo;s&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href=""&gt;Open Science Skills Working Group&lt;/a&gt;).&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;This webinar, hosted by&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;Birgit Schmidt&lt;/em&gt;&amp;nbsp;of LIBER&amp;rsquo;s&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href=""&gt;Research Data Management Working Group&lt;/a&gt;, featured&amp;nbsp;speaker&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;Christopher Erdmann&lt;/em&gt;. He introduced&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;The Carpentries&lt;/em&gt;: a non-profit organisation that trains people in software development and data science skills. One branch of this organisation,&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;Library Carpentry&lt;/em&gt;, is focused on the needs of libraries. Chris spoke&amp;nbsp;about the concept of Library Carpentry: what is taught, why and how, the impact it&amp;rsquo;s having, and what&amp;rsquo;s next.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;We also heard from&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;Juliane Schneider&lt;/em&gt;, a Carpentries trainer, and &lt;em&gt;David Kane&lt;/em&gt;, a systems library at the Waterford Institute of Technology. They spoke about the process for, and benefits of, becoming a Library Carpentry instructor.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
