Description

National 2016 Conference, 29 August-2 September 2016 Adelaide: Engage Create Lead.
 
This conference paper discusses how ibrarians have always played a crucial role in cultivating world class research. Yet, increasingly, all modern research involves some form of computation. If skills such as programming and data analysis are not routinely taught as part of a library science curriculum, what pathways exist for librarians to acquire these skills so they can go on to play a greater role in supporting researchers and in making greater use of the data generated within their own institutions? Library Carpentry is one model for skills acquisition. How could it be put to use in rebooting librarianship for the 21st century – which is already tipped to be the century of big data?
