Data in Libraries: Data Basics and the Reference Interview

March 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CST

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?
