Library Carpentry: Data and Software Skills Training for Librarians
Library Carpentry is an open education volunteer network and lesson organization dedicated to teaching librarians data and software skills. The goal is to help librarians better engage with constituents and improve how they do their work. This talk will serve as an introduction on how Library Carpentry formed in 2015, evolved as a global community of library professionals and will continue as a future sibling of the Carpentries, an umbrella organization of distinct lesson organizations, such as Data and Software Carpentry. We’ll cover existing collaborative lesson development, curricula coverage, workshop activities and the global instructor community. We’ll then talk about the future coordinating activities led by the UC system to align and prepare for a merging with Data and Software Carpentry.

Launching the Digital Lifecycle Program @ UCB
In FY2018, UC Berkeley is launching an expanded program to convert, preserve and publish our physical collections as digital collections. Called the Digital Lifecycle Program, the effort aims to digitize and publish the major collections of UC Berkeley over the next decade. This session will recap our planning process and present the operational framework that is being created.

I'm a librarian, administrator and researcher who cares about how libraries impact our daily lives. I have a passion for structured data and can be easily drawn into a conversation about why we focus so much library energy on metadata and information systems.
