2017 University of Massachusetts and New England Area Librarian e-Science Symposium

Contact: Julie Goldman
Contact: 5088563048 - - North Atlantic region
To continue to enhance collaborative New England Region libraries’ support of e-science initiatives for their research institutions, the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, New England Region is hosting the University of Massachusetts and New England Area Librarian e-Science Symposium. This day-long event will serve as an educational and collaborative opportunity for science and health sciences librarians to discuss e-science resources, in addition to future roles that libraries and librarians might take on to support their institutions. The 2017 Symposium theme “Libraries in Data Science: Addressing Gaps and Bridges” will focus on collaborations and opportunities for librarians becoming involved in data science at their institutions. Attendees will hear a keynote from Kristi Holmes, Director Galter Health Sciences Library, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University. Her keynote will focus on her library’s success involved in Northwestern University’s NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award. We hope this session will inspire and motive attendees to "think outside" the library and identify potential bridges for data services. Participants will be able to attend 2 planned sessions featuring collaborations libraries are currently involved in: Data Repositories Interactive Workshop, Andrew Creamer and Hope Lappen, Brown University; Education & Training Interactive Workshop, Sophie Hou, University Corporation for Atmospheric Research and Nancy Hoebelheinrich, Knowledge Motifs; Education & Training Presentation, Shea Swauger, University of Colorado – Denver; Institutional Models Presentation, Christine Malinowski and Phoebe Ayers, MIT. In the afternoon, there will be a moderated panel discussing the ways librarians and libraries can work with institutional partners (either on/off campus) to enhance data science. The panel will be moderated by Sally Gore, Research Evaluation Analyst, University of Massachusetts Center for Clinical and Translational Science. Participants on the panel include: Daina Bouquin, Head Librarian, John G. Wolbach Library, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics; Audrey Mickle, Data Librarian, Marine Biological Laboratory Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Library; Yvette N. Woell, Manager, Argonne Research Library, Argonne National Laboratory. Additionally, a poster session will be held, to highlight work in e-science that has been accomplished at various libraries in the region while also encouraging discussion and networking among event participants.

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
Lecture, Demonstration, Discussion, Hands-on Exercises, and Problem-based.
