Library Carpentry was an exploratory programme of four three-hour software skills sessions focused on the needs and requirements of the library professionals. For further details, see the outline post. Sessions were held on Monday the 9th, 16th, 23th, and 30th of November 2015 at City University London. We thank the Centre for Information Science for generously agreeing to host Library Carpentry.
Library Carpentry is far from over, but we now into a phase of reflection and planning. If you are interested in what happened during this exploratory run, I direct your attention to two blog posts:
- James Baker, ‘Library Carpentry in words and numbers: all code, no woodwork’ (1 December 2015)
- Clare Playforth, ‘Why the information profession needs Library Carpentry’ (3 December 2015)
Library Carpentry is funded by the Software Sustainability Institute. The Software Sustainability Institute cultivates world-class research with software. The Institute is based at the universities of Edinburgh, Manchester, Southampton and Oxford.
