Facilitating the Development of Research Data Management Services at Health Sciences Libraries

The proposed Research Data Management program is designed to provide training, tools and strategies for medical libraries seeking to develop research data management services. This program provides a holistic approach to developing data services that focuses on building the required knowledge base, understanding and connecting with 133s, promoting effective outreach strategies, and integrating with the broader institutional data community. The program consists of online training modules to provide the necessary background in research data management, and three components to assist libraries in implementing services at their institution: 1. A data interview template with outreach guidelines 2. A teaching toolkit consisting of slides, script, and evaluation materials 3. Strategies and promotional materials for developing a data class series
