Interested in launching research data management services at your library but don’t know how to get started? NNLM MAR has funded a pilot to provide training, tools and strategies for medical libraries seeking to develop research data management services.

The program consists of online training modules for librarians, and three components to assist in implementing services:
We are seeking 5 libraries from the MAR region (DE/NJ/NY/PA) to participate in this pilot. This would involve ongoing support from the project PIs (Kevin Read and Alisa Surkis, NYU Health Sciences Library) throughout the course of the program, including regularly scheduled webinars with all the pilot sites to discuss strategies and challenges.
