Library Carpentry

Archivists, librarians, and information professions all over the world may be interested in the lessons and classes, both online and in-person, offered by Library Carpentry. Originally developed by The Carpentries, which focuses on teaching data and coding skills to researchers, Library Carpentry is a "global community teaching software and data skills to people working in library and information-related roles." Lessons from Library Carpentry include teaching information professionals how to develop and utilize best practices in data structures, how to understand jargon and phrases often used in computer science and software development, and how to effectively work with colleagues in information technology, among others. Workshops are held at institutions and libraries all over the globe, and upcoming ones can be found under the Our workshops tab. Online lessons can be found under Our lessons and are also available on the Library Carpentry's Github page. Library Carpentry encourages participation from the information science community; people can apply to be a teacher with the organization, in addition to volunteering to help with a workshop or hosting one at your institution. Those who are interested in contributing to existing lessons can actually do so via their Github page, and those who want to stay abreast of happenings within the Library Carpentry community may want to check out their active blog, Gitter page, Twitter site, or their discussion page on TopicBox.
