This presentation was delivered at the IOLUG conference-Tackling Data in Libraries: Opportunities and Challenges in Serving User Communities in Indianapolis, IN in May 2019. Data literacy is critical for today’s college graduates. Data science education is fundamentally an interdisciplinary endeavor. Since summer 2018, the presenters, information professionals from the libraries, have been working with instructors from Philosophy and Computer and Electrical Engineering to develop three interlocking one-credit courses at the Midwest, public research university, Purdue University. Spring 2019, the courses are offered to engineering sophomore and junior students to explore three key areas of data literacy: management; ethics; and analysis. In this session, participants learned how we developed the libraries’ one-credit course on data management and we discussed how this course could be interlocked with two other courses. Welcome to contact and work with the presenters for class implementation and research collaboration.
