Data Scientist Training for Librarians (DST4L) will be in Europe for the first 
time from 9-11 September 2015

The amount of research data is growing exponentially. Digitalization, new 
instruments and new methods create data on an unprecedented scale.
However, it also provides exciting new possibilities:

•         to utilize the data more intensively and in new contexts

•         to combine data sets across projects

•         to visualize the data

•         to uncover hidden and implicit knowledge in data sets

•         to establish new collaborations and promote and accelerate research 
and innovation.

Do librarians have a role in this development – we think so!
DST4L is aimed specifically at librarians and research librarians. The course 
has international instructors who are specialists in teaching non-experts in 
data processing, data analysis and visualization.

Seize the opportunity to open the door to a new and exciting career!
DST4L will provide a unique insight into what is a particularly hot topic in 
the research (library) world right now and it could be the start of an 
interesting career in a field that is undergoing rapid development. DST4L not 
only provides an insight into data science, but also gives you direct practical 
experience, as the course is largely based on hands-on training. Therefore, it 
is essential that you are ready to be challenged on your skills – especially 
IT-related skills – however, it is readiness for this, which is important and 
not necessarily to master Python or GitHub from the start. We hope that the 
training may help to create an interest among the participants of Data Science 
because we believe that librarians possess basic skills that, in combination 
with stronger IT skills and analytical skills, could become an extremely 
powerful data scientist librarian profile.
Sign you up here http://www.altbibl.io/dtu/ before 10 June. NB! The number of 
seats is limited.

Who is behind DST4L
DTU Library and DTU Bibliometrics and Data Management are hosts and 
co-organizers of DST4L in collaboration with the EU project FOSTER 
(https://www.fosteropenscience.eu/) and Chris Erdmann, Library Director of the 
Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, who has also been the original 
organizer of DST4L in the United States. DST4L has previously been successfully 
held twice in the states.
