Welcome to Library Carpentry at the Glass Box in Taunton Library! This day is being hosted thanks to funding from a Learning and Teaching Award given to Library Carpentry at the 2016 British Library Labs.
Tabitha: Service Development Manager, Somerset Libraries.
Dave: Systems Officer, LibrariesWest. Chief Technology Officer, CartoConsult.
|9:30am||Arrive, tea/coffee and setup. Get connected. Labels|
WiFi: Guest WiFi is available. Once connected, if you have a LibrariesWest account, use your library login to get connected to the Wifi. If not, please ask us for a guest account.
Labels: Please collect a name label! Also please choose a level of working with data you feel you're at: *beginner (maybe you don't use data much at all), intermediate (you use data quite a bit but you'd like to improve), expert (you've used data regularly and feel like you know your way around data). Don't be afraid to choose expert! We'll spend some time during introductions discussing the different experiences in the room.
Breaks: We can take a break whenever anyone needs to. There are a lot of different sections, so there will always be oportunities to get some air or refill on tea.
