Training librarians for research data management and open science

At IDCC15 we’ll be running a workshop with colleagues from the UK and the Netherlands who have experience of developing and running training for librarians. The workshop will showcase five training courses that are freely available to reuse. The aim is to raise awareness of existing materials, give participants ideas for reusing or combining the content, and share lessons to inform future training.

The workshop runs from 9am-4pm on Wednesday 11th February and costs £100. Please check the event summary for the programme and a link to registration.
