Class Details

Presenter: Tina Griffin, MLIS, Assistant Professor and the library liaison to the College of Pharmacy and also the basic science departments of the College of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Chicago

Description: Libraries have provided research data services in various capacities for over a decade. As a result, many librarians have published on their respective institutions service needs evaluation that determined their service capacity and scope. This webinar will summarize the current state of published literature, in aggregate, regarding those research data services needs assessments. Participants in this webinar will have an understanding of what is currently known of Research Data Management needs and where the gaps in research are relative to institution type, disciplines supported, and demographics.

Speaker Bio: Tina's previous experience in molecular biology included the entire research lifecycle from experimental design through data management to publication. Leveraging her background in basic science, she currently is developing curriculum and workshops on data management; chemical and drug resources; and consults on research data management process improvement on an individual and laboratory level. Her research interests include data management implementation and the intersection between library resources and biological and health informatics.
