They balance the traditional with the innovative

Data librarians work with select users and

provide complex value-added services

But sometimes there’s a fine balance

What can we do?

create stats lit modules anyone can use

teach students how to cite statistics and data

embed in a program and create assignments that develop stats

lit knowledge

promote awareness of data citation with

professors and librarians

build awareness of stats lit elements in our data products (e.g., Roper Center’s

iPoll, the ARDA, ICPSR’s teachingwithdata.org)

incorporate stats lit into our understandings of information

literacy
