The Joint 2017 Midwest Medical Library Association and Michigan Health Sciences Libraries Association Conference received the Professional Development Award from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Greater Midwest Region to offer two continuing education courses focused on data management. We selected this topic based on the vision of the new Director of the National Library of Medicine, Patricia Flatley Brennan, RN, PhD, who said “I believe the future of health and health care rests on data—genomic data, environmental sensor-generated data, electronic health records data, patient-generated data, research collected data. The data originating from research projects is becoming as important as the answers those research projects are providing.”

The “Perspectives in Research Data Management” CE course was presented by Kevin Read and Alisa Surkis from the New York University School of Medicine1. The 2017 Joint Conference was privileged to be the last venue to offer this course. You can view the content of this course at https://tinyurl.com/yb3ux2vq. The second CE offering, “Data Management for Librarians: What Librarians Need to Know,” was designed specifically for our conference by Caitlin Bakker2of University of Minnesota Twin Cities.
