At the end of 2011 a Data Intelligence 4 Librarians course was developed to provide online resources and training for digital preservation practitioners, specifically library staff. Lessons learned during the first rounds of the course and developments in the Research Data Management landscape have led to a revision of the positioning, the structure and the content of the course.
This paper describes both the three main drivers for the revision, the changes themselves and the lessons that can be drawn from them, after three training rounds in 2014 in the revised format under the new programmatic title of Essentials 4 Data Support.
