    SLA-NY was able to share a workshop on Excel basics to North California Association of Law Librarians - NOCALL, and in return NOCALL has invited SLA members to DATA SCIENCE FOR LAW LIBRARIANS.
    Friday October 02, 2020 at 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM PT

    Data science is everywhere these days, but what exactly is it? How do you "do data science"? Is it something law librarians could or should learn? What relationship, if any, is there between data science and artificial intelligence? Is data science only for Big Data? As individuals, we are consumers of data science in all aspects of our lives and our professional lives are no different. This session will explain what data science is, how it is done and how it relates to hot topics like Big Data and Artificial Intelligence. Attendees will understand how data science is relevant to their jobs--how it is used in empirical legal research, to optimize the business of law, and that it underpins current legal research products. Resources for learning data science skills will be included.

    Participants will:

    1. List the skills that make up data science
    2. Describe the areas where data science intersects with the legal system, legal industry, and law librarianship
    3. Acquire the vocabulary & background necessary to effectively discuss business analytics and data science with other institutional departments and/or vendors
