What Are "The Carpentries" and What Are They Doing in the Library?
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v19 n2 p209-214 Apr 2019
Since 2014, the University Libraries at the University of Oklahoma in Norman has been a member of the Software Carpentry Foundation (now part of "The Carpentries"), a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching basic computing skills to researchers. Through this partnership, we have taught over a dozen introductory programming workshops to participants across campus and have established a local community of instructors. By centering this training in the University Libraries, we reaffirm the libraries' position as the intellectual crossroads for research on campus. We also provide professional development opportunities for librarians and other staff to improve their teaching and foster a better understanding of modern research workflows.
