FREE WEBINAR TOMORROW - Exploring data literacy needs at your institution. This webinar will discuss how data literacy initiatives can be integrated into different institutions. Much of the existing work on data literacy has focused on graduate-level training for new researchers, with an emphasis on research data management. Fewer investigations have explored the data literacy needs of undergraduate students; however, as undergraduate curricula at many universities have shifted to include “information and data literacy,” librarians and teaching faculty across disciplines are integrating data literacy along with information literacy into courses and programs.
