Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities and Data Librarians: Connections that Resonate
Key themes in Dickens’ novel, transformation and resurrection, darkness and light, and social justice are firmly connected to the work being done in data. Data librarians can make a difference in times like these: resurrecting data, transforming how students, researchers, or the public think about and use data; unearthing and bringing to light historical data that will give context and meaning to an issue; and that accessible data can help address, and perhaps solve, social justice issues.
Keywords: social justice, data services, research data management, data librarianship
