Rendezvous webcast: Demystifying Data
Edit: A recording is now available at https://webmeeting.nih.gov/p41966141/
This month’s RML Rendezvous will provide an introduction to all things data. There are a lot of jargon and buzzwords around data, data management, data curation and e-science. We’ll discuss what all of these terms mean to librarians and health sciences researchers. We’ll also take a look at a few example data sets to see how data sets can be combined, why researchers might need a librarian’s help with their data and why this is important for forwarding scientific discovery.
Come join us on Wednesday, April 24, 2013 at 1pm Pacific time (Noon Alaska, 2pm Mountain) during our free monthly webcast at http://webmeeting.nih.gov/rendezvous to learn more about the terms used when discussing data and a look at some open health data sets, presented by Mahria Lebow, Technology Outreach Coordinator here at the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Pacific Northwest Region (NN/LM PNR).
