The FDA is an extremely large government agency with broad regulatory authority and oversight of many products, and works closely with several other government agencies.

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.
CE Contact Hours: 4 hours • Face to Face, Hands-on about Research, Technology/Systems
