Library Carpentry workshops teach people working in library- and information-related roles how to:

  • Identify and use best practices in data structures.
  • Learn how to programmatically transform and map data from one form to another.
  • Work effectively with researchers, IT, and systems colleagues.
  • Automate repetitive, error-prone tasks.

Library Carpentry introduces you to the fundamentals of computing and provides you with a platform for further self-directed learning. For more information on what we teach and why, please see the paper, "Library Carpentry: software skills training for library professionals." (Linked below)
