The GMR is excited to announce that the Health Sciences Libraries at the University of Minnesota have been awarded a Research Data Management (RDM) Award to support research data management services! The project will expand RDM education not only within their institution but across the GMR as well!
This project has two goals:
- Enable health science librarians at institutions throughout the GMR to build research data management knowledge and skills and develop actionable next steps to provide data services at their libraries
- Enable health science faculty and graduate/professional students at the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) to better understand data management best practices, be better positioned to prepare more competitive grant proposals, and learn how to prepare datasets for preservation, sharing, and re-use
To address Goal 1, the University of Minnesota will fund up to twelve travel stipends for librarians across the GMR to travel to Minneapolis and attend a special MLA CE approved Data Management Course. Librarians will be selected through a competitive application process.
To accomplish Goal 2, a data management workshop will be hosted on the University of Minnesota Duluth campus for up to 40 faculty and students. In person consultations will also be offered following the workshop to offer more personalized training.
Congrats to UMN and be on the lookout in the coming months for information about applying to attend the Data Management Course in Minnesota!
