The UCLA Library will develop, implement, and refine a reusable curriculum to teach library and information professionals the skills to participate in a research lifecycle that enables open science. The “Lessons for Librarians in Open Science Principles and Methods” project will use a peer review method to solicit and fund modular lesson creation to train library and archives staff in open science methods and digital processes. The project will include creating a review committee of researchers, librarians, and open science professionals; developing and issuing a call for lesson proposals; the selection of lessons; and holding two virtual summer schools to support selected lesson designers in curricular and modular lesson development. The resulting 14 open source and modular lessons will support continued skill development for librarians so they can provide instruction to researchers and collaborate on science projects.
