Well of-course it is. How would you suppose to work with no reference material? Or better, what would you work on if you don’t have the very core thing you need for your job? Data library is basically a storage unit that conserves data and information. But along with that it does more things.


For example, there are separate systems and tech that operate regularly.  Having all work on one system increases the risk of failure and malfunction. However, there are small tasks within a machine that cannot be separated. For example, a data science library is not just a storage unit. It reprocessed data as well. When you transfer data from a drive to another, it encodes it, then formulates it and then decodes to get to your assistance.


These tasks are not a work of a separate machine or say a part. Data libraries are one of the most crucial tech a data scientist may have. Without it, it will be like a manager without employees to management. I’m not saying that having a data library is utmost and things can’t function without it. However, if you do not keep a large database like it, you would simply have to rely upon your brain and piece of papers (which is not ideal in modern times).


Now one may argue that data and information can be stored in the cloud as frequencies. And it will be right, unless it has a separate meaning, because the time you upload your data into the cloud, the cloud becomes your storage unit hence; data library. A data library is anything that can store data and formulate it. Basically, it’s up to you how you manage to keep and where.


If you are working in a small-time business, it may be possible to work without  a data library. But large multinational corporations and firms need regular flow of information to keep their errands running. This can be in the form of orders or even an invoice. Anything that is helping to run your business is data. Data libraries are the most crucial thing for data scientists as it facilitates their work smoothly.


By your question, I can assume that you are a data science aspirant. Are you in between your studies or looking for a program to apply? If you need any kind of information regarding data science, you can just leave a comment.
