What is Library Carpentry?
Library Carpentry is made by librarians, for librarians to help you:
- automate repetitive, boring, error-prone tasks
- create, maintain and analyse sustainable and reusable data
- work effectively with IT and systems colleagues
- better understand the use of software in research
- and much more…
Library Carpentry introduces you to the fundamentals of computing and provides you with a platform for further self-directed learning.
