Request for Input on Data Catalog Concept

Monday, June 17th, 2013

The NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative is considering the development of a biomedical Data Catalog to make biomedical research data findable and citable, as PubMed does for scientific publications.  NIH is seeking input on this idea. Please refer to the link below for an RFI on this topic and share with interested communities: Request for Information (RFI): Input on Development of a NIH Data Catalog  (NOT-HG-13-011) National Human Genome Research Institute.

Such a Data Catalog would make it easier for researchers to find, share, and cite data, as well as the publications and grants that they are associated with. A Data Catalog is distinct from a data repository, but would help make data in such repositories more easily findable and citable in a consistent manner. In addition to supplying core, minimal metadata to ensure a valid data reference, it is envisioned that a Data Catalog would include links out to the location of the data, to the NIH Reporter record of the grant that supported the research, to relevant publications within PubMed or journals, and possibly to associated software or algorithms.  /ch

EDUCATION: Spotlight! on NLM Resources – Multiple Language Resources – Wed. May 22

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013
  • Spotlight on National Library of Medicine Resources – Wed. May 22, 2013, 1:00 MT, 2:00 CT – Multiple Language Resources.

Research conducted over the past 25 years has shown a strong correlation between language barriers and poor quality health care. Language can affect the accuracy of patient histories, the ability to engage in treatment decision-making, poorer understanding of a medical diagnosis or treatment, underuse of primary and preventative services, lower use and misuse of prescription medications, and a decreased level of patient trust. In the MidContinental Region there are many languages used:  American Sign Language, Arabic, Cambodian, Chinese, Cushite, English, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Korean, Laotian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Spanish, Swahili, Tagalog, Thai, Urdu, and Vietnamese. Maybe more! In this session, Dana Abbey will discuss free and authoritative resources for meeting the multi-language health information needs in your community.

One MLA CE credit will be available for this class.
