Introduction to Python Programming for Librarians
Instructor: Andromeda Yelton
Dates: November 1-28, 2013
Credits: 1.5 CEUs
In this course, you’ll learn the basics of the Python programming language from a library perspective. Programming topics will include variables, if/else, loops, functions, lists, dicts, and modules. You’ll get hands-on practice with each concept. Throughout the course we’ll apply our emerging Python knowledge to real-world library examples. You’ll leave the course with a plan for applying your programming skills to improve your own library services and workflows.
