The New England Software Carpentry Library Consortium or NESCLiC is an association of academic libraries, joined as a community of practice focused on building data science skills in research computing, and extracting, wrangling, storing, analyzing, and visualizing data. NESCLiC allows member institutions to share in a Gold-level membership with the Carpentries.
NESCliC member institutions share a Gold-level Carpentries membership, which affords NESCLiC 6 free coordinated workshops, a 50% discount on the cost for additional coordinated workshops, no charge for self-organized workshops, and fifteen instructors trained, per year.
NESCLiC provides the opportunity for members to:
- Develop instructional materials
- Build a network of data fluent researchers and instructors
- Refine skills by participating as instructors at other member institutions
Financial commitment: Cost of shared Carpentry membership ($1000/person) plus training expenses (travel or hosting)
Time commitment: (2) – two-day training workshops plus committee work
NESCLiC has established bylaws and members contribute to the consortium by participating in one of several roles:
- Carpentries liaison
- Workshop coordination
