Ongoing: Search for Libraries to Participate in RDM Pilot

Posted by on August 15th, 2017 Posted in: Data Science, Education, Funding, In the Region

The search continues! If you are interested in launching research data management services at your library, please consider participating in this pilot project.

NNLM MAR has funded a pilot to provide training, tools and strategies for medical libraries seeking to develop research data management services. This program provides a holistic approach to developing data services that focuses on building the required knowledge base, understanding and connecting with researchers, promoting effective outreach strategies, and integrating with the broader institutional data community. The program consists of online training modules for librarians, and three components to assist in implementing services:

  • A data interview template with guidance for effective outreach and engagement with researchers
  • A teaching toolkit consisting of slides, script, and evaluation materials to be used for teaching researchers at the pilot institution
  • Strategies and promotional materials for developing a data class series

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.

If your library is interested in participating in this pilot project, please contact Kevin Read or Alisa Surkis.
