The NNLM’s research data management (RDM) course entitled, “RDM 101” kicked off this past Monday, September 9th, 2019 with a full class; interest in this particular RDM course was so high that it even gave rise to a course waitlist!
RDM 101 is an excellent and comprehensive course on RDM basics. It covers topics that are relevant to the supporting RDM librarian, who needs to help anyone in research that needs a hand with managing and organizing data. More specifically, it covers these key data science topics:
- Data organization
(i.e. data collection, data documentation like file naming etc., data types, metadata format and standards for metadata content like controlled vocabularies, and data management plan (DMPs) design);
- Data storage and security
(i.e. short-term backup and long-term storage options, encryption, password protection etc.);
- Data access and sharing, and reuse
(i.e. copyright and intellectual property issues, data use agreements, data sharing funder requirements, licenses for data usage etc.) and;
- Data preservation
(i.e. various data repositories – subject specific, general, and institutional – and data journals).
For the busy librarian who may not have the time commitment that is required and involved to participate in this RDM 101 course, or for the librarian who couldn’t get into the Moodle course, there is hope!!! All of the RDM 101 course material except active links to the course readings and assignments/pretest/posttest material is up and running on the NNLM’s RD3 website.
The NNLM’s RD3 website is the answer to your data science questions. It is an excellent and comprehensive website about data science and includes a page under “Training” for RDM training from the RDM 101 course. It is organized by week and there are 5 weeks in total.
Something to look forward to in the next coming weeks is RDM 102’s course material will be posted on the NNLM’s RD3 website too! Soooo, stay tuned!!!
