NNLM RD3: Resources for Data-Driven Discovery
The NNLM supports access to biomedical and health information with the goal of making data discoverable, accessible, and citable. NNLM RD3: Resources for Data-Driven Discovery has been developed to foster learning and collaboration in data science. In order to support sharing, curating, and annotating biomedical data, NNLM RD3 serves as a resource for librarians, library students, information professionals, and interested individuals to learn about and discuss: library roles in data science; fundamentals of domain sciences; emerging trends in supporting biomedical research.
The Charts are Off: Approaches to Ethical Decision-Making in Data Visualization
Webinar: October 22nd, 2020
Many of us work in environments filled with "data-driven" decision-making and regular reporting of data to justify our budgets and planning. Data Visualization can be a powerful tool for telling our story and presenting the facts on the ground, but how can we make ethically informed decisions when visualizing our data? This talk will discuss different ethical frameworks and how they can inform the decisions we make in data visualization. We aim to go beyond discussion of avoiding misleading charts and into the ethical decision-making frameworks that inform how to present our data.
