Paper: "Data-Intelligence Training for Library Staff", Ellen Verbakel, Madeleine de Smaele, 3TU.Datacentrum, TU Delft Library, Delft, The Netherlands

Abstract - The course Data Intelligence 4 Librarians was developed by 3TU.Datacentrum at the end of 2011 to provide online resources and training for digital preservation
practitioners, specifically for library staff. The course is intended to overcome the insecurity and perceived lack of knowledge about data management which prevents library staff from proactively providing support to research staff with the management, storage and sharing of their research data. The course objectives are: 1) to transfer and exchange knowledge about data management, and 2) to provide participants with the skills required to advise researchers or research groups on efficient and effective ways of adding value to their data. The course is an additional service provided by 3TU.Datacentrum23 a digital repository for research data set up by the research libraries of the three Dutch Universities of Technology (3TU): Delft University of Technology, Eindhoven University of Technology, and the University of Twente. The paper describes the process of creating the course, the methodology, and the results of the two courses in 2012.
