Data Sharing and Reuse: Roles for Health Sciences Librarians

Contact: Lisa Federer
Contact: 301-594-6283 - Mid-Atlantic region
Funders and journals increasingly are requiring biomedical researchers to make their research data available, and meaningful use criteria also call for clinicians and hospitals to share data for public health purposes. Librarians’ expertise with information organization makes them invaluable collaborators for researchers who want to share their data or locate datasets for reuse and reanalysis. This course will provide librarians with tools and skills to help support data sharing and reuse. Participants will learn about policies regarding data sharing, how to assist researchers to prepare data for sharing, and how to locate and prepare datasets for researchers to reuse. The course will also introduce participants to free software to facilitate sharing and organization of data.

Fundamentals of Bioinformatics and Searching

Contact: Jessi Van Der Volgen and Diane Rein
Contact: 801-581-4704 Fax: 801-581-3632 - http://nnlm.gov/ntc/ - All region
The major goal of this course is to provide an introduction to bioinformatics theory and practice to provide the fundamentals for developing library-based bioinformatics products and services decision-making and implementation, particularly instructional and reference services. It encompasses visualizing bioinformatics end-user practice, places a strong emphasis on hands-on acquisition of NCBI Entrez search competencies, and a working molecular biology vocabulary, through self-paced hands-on exercises. It carries an expectation of engagement between course participants and their supervisor(s) while participants are enrolled in the course itself. A supporting statement from an inline supervisor is required. This course currently is a prerequisite for the face-to-face workshop, Librarian’s Guide to NCBI.
