Posted by on November 14th, 2018 Posted in: Funding, Research Data Management

The National Network of Libraries of Medicine Southeastern/Atlantic Region (SEA) seeks applications to implement of an institutional data catalog aiding researchers and others in the discovery of data. The data catalog should make data findable and allow users to understand and connect to available local and national datasets.

A goal of this program is to promote FAIR Data Principles, advance research, data-sharing and accessibility through the use of a searchable online collection of data locaters.

Proposed projects should include datasets generated by the funded organization, but may also include publicly available and licensed datasets generated by external organizations. The catalog is designed to Increase the visibility of research data generated by the funded organizations’ researchers; facilitate collaboration across departments at the funded organization; help researchers locate and understand datasets generated at external organizations; and support the process of re-using research data.

Awards are limited to medical libraries supporting a large research endeavor.

In the period of the award, December – April 30, 2019, awardees will receive and install the open-source software, learn the structure of the data files, establish a workflow, and begin test entries.

Applicants are encouraged to make use of the open source data catalog created by New York University and to join the Data Catalog Collaboration Project; however, neither is a requirement. Support for data catalogs at awardee institutions must include a dedicated developer in the Personnel description to support its launch.
