Library Carpentry Workshop

Library Carpentry is made by librarians, for librarians to help you:
- automate repetitive, boring, error-prone tasks
- create, maintain and analyse sustainable and reusable data
- work effectively with IT and systems colleagues
- better understand the use of software in research
- and much more…
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 our paper “Library Carpentry: software skills training for library professionals“.

Requirements: Participants must bring a laptop with a Mac, Linux, or Windows operating system (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc.) that they have administrative privileges on. They should have a few specific software packages installed (listed below). They are also required to abide by Library Carpentry’s Code of Conduct.

Materials will be provided in advance of the workshop and large-print handouts are available if needed by notifying the organizers in advance.
