Library Carpentry Mozilla Global Sprint


Mozilla’s Global Sprint is a fun, fast-paced and two-day collaborative event to hack and build projects for a healthy Internet.


A diverse network of scientists, educators, artists, engineers and others come together in person and online to innovate in the open. Library Carpentry Community from around the word is joining the Sprint for the second time. The goal of the event is to amend, update, and extend the existing Library Carpentry lessons and get draft lessons on SQL, Python, web scraping, and other topics into final shape for launch.

Library Carpentry

Library Carpentry is made by librarians, for librarians to help you:

  • automate repetitive, boring, error-prone tasks
  • create, maintain and analyse sustainable and reusable data
  • work effectively with IT and systems colleagues
  • better understand the use of software in research
  • and much more…

Library Carpentry introduces you to the fundamentals of computing and provides you with a platform for further self-directed learning.

Who should join?

We welcome contributions from librarians, archivists, information professionals, digital humanities researchers and anyone who wants to contribute to building the lessons and this fast growing community. The KB, National Library of the Netherlands is going to host the Dutch site this year.
