Health Sciences Library Partnership Award: Development of Library Collection & Support for Data Science Literacy

The goals of this project are to promote data science literacy by providing resources, software, and Librarian assistance to Allied Health students and faculty at the Oregon Institute of Technology OIT campuses. These goals will be supported through collection development in data science subjects, subscriptions to data science tools, "train the trainer" education in data science to support library services surrounding data science, and a partnership with an outside expert to teach a data science workshop. The funding will support development of education strategies to increase data science literacy by students and faculty. Providing data science skills to the Allied Health students at OIT will provide the next generation of health professionals with tools to provide better access to health information.
