Webinar: Data in Libraries: Data Basics and The Reference Interview

October 19, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm UTC-6


As the world embraces data, so must librarians.  Increasingly librarians are facing reference interactions that necessitate, or would be enhanced by, a foundational understanding of data.  This webinar will serve as an introduction to the data reference interview, the advantages and issues involved in using data in a reference transaction, and how to approach issues of data literacy and validity. Some of the questions to be addressed include: How is conducting a data reference interview similar and different from a traditional reference interview?  What are the primary elements to look out for when consulting documentation? How do I know if the data is reliable and valid?
