  • Data management : a practical guide for librarians / Margaret E. Henderson
    Z 711.97 H46 2017
    Libraries organize information and data is information, so it is natural that librarians should help people who need to find, organize, use, or store data. Organizations need evidence for decision making; data provides that evidence. Inventors and creators build upon data collected by others. All around us, people need data. Librarians can help increase the relevance of their library to the research and education mission of their institution by learning more about data and how to manage it. Data Management will guide readers through: 1.Understanding data management basics and best practices. 2.Using the reference interview to help with data management 3.Writing data management plans for grants. 4.Starting and growing a data management service. 5.Finding collaborators inside and outside the library. 6.Collecting and using data in different disciplines.

  • The librarian's introduction to programming languages : a LITA guide / edited by Beth Thomsett-Scott
    Z 678.9 L47 2016
    The Librarian's Introduction to Programming Languages presents case studies and practical applications for using the top programming languages in library and information settings. While there are books and Web sites devoted to teaching programming, there are few works that address multiple programming languages or address the specific reasons why programming is a critical area of learning for library and information science professionals. There are many books on programming languages but no recent items directly written for librarians that span a variety of programs. Many practicing librarians see programming as something for IT people or beyond their capabilities. This book will help these librarians to feel comfortable discussion programming with others by providing an understanding of when the language might be useful, what is needed to make it work, and relevant tools to extend its application. Additionally, the inclusion of practical examples lets readers try a small "app" for the language. This also will assist readers who want to learn a language but are unsure of which language would be the best fit for them in terms of learning curve and application. Languages covered are: -JavaScript -PERL -PHP -SQL -Python -Ruby -C -C# -Java This book is designed to provide a basic working knowledge of each language presented, case studies which show the programming language used in real ways and resources for exploring each language in more detail.
