"the ability to ask and answer real-world questions from large and small data sets through an inquiry process, with consideration of ethical use of data"

the NCLive subscription to SimplyAnalytics is ending for North Carolina libraries
I know :(
SA is staying put in general as a database
Oh, whew. Thank you for clarifying that Nancy : )
For sure, Alison
(This is a Carolina Consortium deal for both public and academic libraries to get a discount on your own SimplyAnalytics subscription).
Just say "no" to connecting your wine fridge to the internet.

Spatial data (geography background)
My uni admin's favorite excuse, "data-driven."
just plain data
every project makes you smarter about data
I just finished Library Journals Equity in Action training for auditing your collection
and as far as numbers go, they matter and then they don't :)
You are welcome!
Yes! I agree.
I've been working with education grad students, and trying to introduce some data literacy around the data they themselves are generating through literature searches and reviews. It's very basic, but they seem to like it.
with trying to be more aware of collecting data for assessment of library instruction, we started using Project Outcome https://acrl.projectoutcome.org/
And there is a Public version too!
does anyone use LibInsights? from SpringShare
very cool; we just got it.
Still figuring it out :)
I think it's important to be humble, as both Nancy and Morgan have alluded to in their presentation, that we as librarians aren't going to be able to be all to all folks looking for assistance with data. And we can't do the analysis, but we can help with questions about how to interpret and be curious about data.
I don't get too involved in systematic reviews in my job, but some health science librarians do and part of what some of them do is help manage the various parts of documenting search strategies and managing the references.
I am working with my department (academic) to revamp our workshops and this is a very helpful resource - http://www.datainfolit.org/dilguide/
That's a new one to me Lauren- thanks for sharing!
I am a big fan of the data literacy trainings from the Carpentries: https://carpentries.org/
They have a whole track for librarians
My sister completed Girls Who Code and absolutely loved it
Thanks for that shoutout, Morgan! :)

teamwork makes the dream work!
It certainly feels less scary to me now that I have heard from you both.
thank you, Morgan and Nancy!
Bye, thank you!!
