Dear Open Science list,

As part of organizing Data Scientist Training for Librarians (DST4L), we hereby would like to promote the upcoming event at Denmark’s Technical University in the days Dec. 7th – Dec. 9th.

Data Scientist Training for Librarians<http://www.dst4l.info/> (DST4L) is an experimental course, started at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics John G. Wolbach Library<http://www.cfa.harvard.edu/lib/> and the Harvard Library<http://library.harvard.edu/> to train librarians to respond to the growing data needs of their communities. Data science techniques are becoming increasingly important to all fields of scholarship. In this hands-on course, librarians learn the latest tools for extracting, wrangling, storing, analyzing, and visualizing data. By experiencing the research data lifecycle themselves, librarians develop the data savvy skills that can help transform the services they offer. Read more about the program here<http://www.aspbooks.org/publications/492/031.pdf>.

Thanks to the great souls and engaged librarians at the DTU Library<http://www.bibliotek.dtu.dk/>, The Royal Library in Copenhagen<http://www.kb.dk/>, and The Royal School of Library and Information Science<http://www.dst4l.info/about.html> and fundings from our contributors<http://www.dst4l.info/contributors.html>, DST4L is coming to Copenhagen, again. The course is without cost and open for Registration from September 20th to October 9th. Space is limited and acceptance will be based on the strength of your application. The organizers will review the applications and return with final answers to those that will be able to attend physically.

Please take a look at the schedule to see if you can commit to the program before registration.
