The LIBER Data Science in Libraries Working Group was founded in the Spring of 2021. The Working Group seeks to explore and promote library engagement in applying data science and analytical methods in libraries, taking into account all kinds of processes and workflows around library collections and metadata as well as digital infrastructures and service areas.
In this pre-conference workshop, we wish to connect practitioners of data science in research libraries, in order to share experiences and ideas on the topic. The Working Group is also preparing a landscape analysis and survey with the aim of creating an overview of data science activities (and eventual recommendations) in research libraries. We would like to further develop this landscape analysis and survey with the input of workshop attendees in a hackathon-style session.
