Registration for the first session of the NNLM Research Data Management Webinar Series is now available. Research Data Management Services: Beyond Analysis and Coding will be offered on Thursday, June 14, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PDT. The instructor will be Margaret Henderson, Health Sciences Librarian, San Diego State University Library.
Summary: There is more to RDM services than the technical skills necessary for data management. Soft skills and non-technical skills are very important when setting up RDM services, and continue to be important to the sustainability of services. Reference skills, relationship building, negotiation, listening, facilitating access to de-centralized resources, policy knowledge and assessment, are all important to the success of a service. Margaret Henderson will discuss these skills and show you how to start RDM services, even if you don’t feel confident about your statistical skills or knowledge of R.
