The National Network of Libraries of Medicine recently released a new portal to help librarians, library students, information professionals, and other interested individuals learn about managing, storing, and sharing biomedical data. The portal, called NNLM RD3: Resources for Data-Driven Discovery, has a number of valuable features for learning about data science, including:
- Subject Primers: Find information and resources on multiple science disciplines (life sciences, physical sciences, and engineering), and learn the fundamentals about data literacy and open science.
- Manage Data: Learn why librarians should advocate for research data management, tools and guidelines for a data management plan, information on data life cycles, a list of data tools, and policy resources related to data management.
- Store Data: Read about why data needs to be stored, and learn about data repositories, metadata, and data curation.
- Share Data: Learn why organizations should share data, and find resources on sharing and citing data.
- Professional Development Tools: Find professional development tools, including a data terminology thesaurus, publications about data science, online courses and workshops on data science and management, professional organizations to join, and regional programs across the US on data science.
