The class is designed to provide information professionals working in health sciences with an introduction to research data management. The primary goal of this course is to improve your knowledge and skills in research data management and enable you to add or enhance research data management training and services at your institution.

This 9-week course will have participants read foundational texts in research data management, engage in discussions with other participants, complete assignments designed to improve knowledge and skills, and develop a final project of teaching a concept from the course or delivering a presentation on library roles in research data management.

Participants will work with course facilitators and community experts to complete course assignments and gain an understanding of the role of research data management in libraries.

Participation for this course is capped at 60 learners, so if you are interested in applying to register for this course, please commit to spending 3 total hours per week engaging with the course readings and assignments for the full 9 weeks of the course.
