    Hello Chapter colleagues,

    I’m excited to announce that the Midwest and Midcontinental Chapters of MLA will be co-hosting a free Library Carpentry workshop through funding from NNLM Region 4.  

    Save the date! The workshop will be held online over three days during the week of April 4-7. Exact dates and times haven’t yet been determined.

    We will have 25 spots available and are prioritizing members of the Midwest and Midcontinental Chapters.

    Library Carpentry focuses on building software and data skills within library and information-related communities. Their hands-on, approachable workshops empower people in a variety of roles to use software and data in their own work and support effective, efficient, reproducible practices. Learn more about Library Carpentry from their website.

    In this 3-day interactive, hands-on virtual workshop you will learn core data skills to help you build confidence in working with data in library- and information-related settings. During the April 2024 workshop, we will be covering the following lessons: 

    Enrollment will open on Thursday, February 22th at 8:00 a.m. CT. We will notify you of your enrollment or wait list status by Thursday, March 7th at 4:00 p.m. CT. If we offer you enrollment, please confirm your commitment to attend by Friday, March 15th at 4:00 p.m. CT.

    Contact me or Timmi Johnson if you have more questions.
