With data rapidly replacing information as the currency of research, business, government, and healthcare, is it time for librarians to make data literacy central to their professional mission, take on roles as interdisciplinary mediators, and lead the data literacy movement on campus? Join the data literacy debate and discuss what librarians can do to cut across the disciplinary and professional silos now threatening the development of lifewide data literacy. Investigate and critique diverse conceptions and pedagogies for data literacy, and experiment with the MAW theory of stakeholder saliency to identify individuals and groups to target in your data literacy initiatives.
