Library Carpentry OpenRefine: About

Library Carpentry logo
Library Carpentry is software skills training aimed at the needs and requirements of library professionals. Our work is in the commons and for the commons and is not tied to any institution or person. Established in 2015, Library Carpentry is a global movement that builds in the work of Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry.


Software Carpentry logo
Since 1998, Software Carpentry has been teaching researchers in science, engineering, medicine, and related disciplines the computing skills they need to get more done in less time and with less pain. Its volunteer instructors have run hundreds of events for thousands of learners in the past two and a half years.


Data Carpentry logo
Data Carpentry develops and teaches workshops on the fundamental data skills needed to conduct research. Its target audience is researchers who have little to no prior computational experience, and its lessons are domain specific, building on learners' existing knowledge to enable them to quickly apply skills learned to their own research.

Library Carpentry is made by librarians to help librarians 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 was the winner of the 2016 British Library Labs Teaching and Learning Award.
