The Data Science and Visualization Institute for Librarians is a week-long 
course providing the opportunity for librarians passionate about research and 
scholarship to immerse themselves in learning about data science and 
visualization in collaboration with academic peers. Participants will develop 
knowledge, skills, and confidence to communicate effectively with faculty and 
student researchers about their data and be able to provide initial consultancy 
on the course topics. Led by expert instructors, sessions will be interactive 
and will focus on mastery of core concepts, with hands-on exposure to select 
open source and highly used commercial tools. Sharing of practices and 
experiences across institutions will be encouraged.


A final schedule will be available in December, including topics such as:


·  Data Exploration and Analysis

·  Data Visualization

·  Data Cleaning and Preparation

·  Web Scraping

·  Parsing HTML & JSON, Orchestrating APIs, and Gathering Twitter Streams

·  Data Description, Sharing, and Reuse
