Event description


Join us on 12th December at 1400 CET for a LIBER webinar with the authors of The Data Librarian’s Handbook, Robin Rice and John Southall, for a look at how librarians can support data literacy for their users and for themselves.

Robin will kick off the webinar with an overview of topics in data literacy-related support and training: promoting data citation and open licenses, data discovery and access methods, data formats and standards, data handling and statistical literacy. Questions will be raised about librarians’ role in data literacy training and how data literate librarians need to be – to stimulate thoughts from the audience during the interactive part of the webinar.

John will then discuss recent work on improving data literacy for library support staff at the University of Oxford. This includes general sessions on the principles of research data management for library staff, and organising a series of termly data briefings. In addition existing training has been refined to target subject and divisional needs such as in the Medical Sciences Division. John will give some examples of the feedback he has received on success in developing new data-centric jobs within the Bodleian Libraries.

The webinar is hosted by LIBER, Europe's main research library association, and coordinated by LIBER's Research Data Management Working Group.
