Data Science in the Library: Tools and Strategies for Supporting Data-Driven Research and Instruction, from Facet Publishing, brings together an international group of librarians and faculty to consider the opportunities afforded by data science for research libraries. Using practical examples, each chapter focuses on data science instruction, reproducible research, establishing data science services and key data science partnerships.

Facet Publishing says the book will be invaluable to library and information professionals interested in building or expanding data science services, describing it as 'a practical, useful tool for researchers, students, and instructors interested in implementing models for data science service that build community and advance the discipline'.

Anthony Suen, program director in the division of Computing, Data Science, and Society at UC Berkeley, said: ‘Data Science in the Library highlights the library’s unique role as a 'third space' for data science at a university campus. This ranges from directly providing space for cross-campus interdisciplinary research support and training to creating new curriculum in under-taught areas such as RDM and reproducibility. It is essential reading not only for librarians practicing data science, but for administrators of data science programs across the world.’
