DTU Library Copenhagen


DST4L comes to Copenhagen - again

The role of the librarian in the Digital Age is changing? How will the role evolve? What do librarians need to focus on if they want to be a part of and included in academic workflows in the future?

Data Scientist Training for Librarians (DST4L) is an experimental course, started at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics John G. Wolbach Library and the Harvard Library to train librarians to respond to the growing data needs of their communities. Data science techniques are becoming increasingly important to all fields of scholarship. In this hands-on course, librarians learn the latest tools for extracting, wrangling, storing, analyzing, and visualizing data. By experiencing the research data lifecycle themselves, librarians develop the data savvy skills that can help transform the services they offer. Read more about how it all began here.

Thanks to the great souls and engaged librarians at the DTU Library, The Royal Library in Copenhagen, and The Royal School of Library and Information Science and fundings from our contributors, DST4L is coming to Copenhagen, again. The course is without cost and open for Registration from September 20th to October 9th. Space is limited and acceptance will be based on the strength of your application. The organizers will review the applications and return with final answers to those that will be able to attend physically. The workshops runs from December 7th to December 9th and the schedule can be found here. If you cannot attend the workshop, material will be made available via the DST4L @ Copenhagen website after the event is over. The workshop will be live streamed and recorded for people not attending the 3 days.

Registration is now closed.
