NNLM supports the goals of the NLM Strategic Plan 2017-2027: A Platform for Biomedical Discovery and Data-Powered Health. This effort is led by the National Center for Data Services. Two of the key goals of this plan are to accelerate discovery and advance health through data-driven research and to build a workforce for data-driven research and health. Through funding, education, and outreach, the Network serves as a resource for librarians, students, and interested individuals to learn about library roles in data science and data management and emerging trends in supporting biomedical research.
