LIBER Webinar: Supporting Data Literacy
*Join us on 12 December
1400 CET for a LIBER Webinar with the authors of TheData Librarian’s
Handbook .*
Robin Rice and John Southall will speak about 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.
