New England Science Boot Camp for Librarians

Contact: Julie Goldman
Contact: 5088563048 - - North Atlantic region
Science Boot Camp is a fun and affordable 2 ½ day immersion into science topics offering opportunities for librarians and library students interested in science, health sciences, and technology to learn, meet and network in a fun, laid-back atmosphere. Each day involves presentations from scientists about their respective scientific field. One presenter will present an overview of the subject, and the second presenter discusses their research application within the field. This set-up provides science librarians with the base knowledge needed to understand the subject, and also understand how researchers are working in the field. Each presenter provides key resources for their subject, and also addresses how librarians can help researchers within the field of study. Subjects in the past have included nursing, engineering, genetics, public health, toxicology and data visualization. The final day of Boot Camp includes a Capstone Session which provides librarians with a hands-on activity in a related area of study including: research data management, how to talk to researchers, science literacy and citizen science.

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.
