Title: Data Literacy, libraries, and librarians
Description: Libraries have traditionally excelled in promoting information literacy and bibliographic instruction as part of learning research skills. But data literacy is now also becoming a growing and important building block in the knowledge base of information professionals involved in supporting data-intensive research. This presentation takes a broad look at how important data literacy skills are becoming for librarians, especially within the larger context of the data science revolution (or the so-called 4th Industrial Revolution). It ends of with suggestions on how libraries can become more involved in supporting new data-intensive roles within institutions, including the data and software skills needed to support such roles.
