Overview

Harvard Business Review has described the data scientist as a high-ranking professional with the training and curiosity to make discoveries in the world of Big Data, and called that role “the sexiest job of the 21st century.” Amy Affelt, author of The Accidental Data Scientist, notes that “Librarians and information professionals have always worked with data in order to meet the information needs of their constituents, thus ‘Big Data’ is not a new concept for them.” With The Accidental Data Scientist, Amy Affelt shows information professionals how to leverage their skills and training to master emerging tools, techniques, and vocabulary; create mission-critical Big Data research deliverables; and discover rewarding new career opportunities by embracing their inner Data Scientist.
