CNI is pleased to serve once again as a partner for this important event, which provides librarians with an opportunity to learn about data science and visualization.
Save the Date! The Data Science and Visualization Institute for Librarians will be held June 4 – 8th, 2018 at the James B. Hunt Jr. Library, North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Applications for the Institute will be accepted beginning on Dec 12, 2017.
The Data Science and Visualization Institute for Librarians is a week-long course providing the opportunity for librarians passionate about research and scholarship to immerse themselves in learning about data science and visualization in collaboration with academic peers. Participants will develop knowledge, skills, and confidence to communicate effectively with faculty and student researchers about their data and be able to provide initial consultancy on the course topics. Led by expert instructors, sessions will be interactive and will focus on mastery of core concepts, with hands-on exposure to select open source and highly used commercial tools. Sharing of practices and experiences across institutions will be encouraged.
A final schedule will be available in early December, including topics such as:
- Data Exploration and Analysis
- Data Visualization
- Data Cleaning and Preparation
- Web Scraping
- Parsing HTML & JSON, Orchestrating APIs, and Gathering Twitter Streams
- Bibliometric Network Analysis
- Data Description, Sharing, and Reuse
