Biomedical & Health Research Data Management for Librarians
Health sciences librarians are invited to participate in an online biomedical and health research data management training course, offered by the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM). The course provides basic knowledge and skills for librarians interested in helping patrons manage their research data.
