Data Curation / Management Journal Club is for librarians (or equivalent) who are interested in learning more about data curation/management and its impact on health information access. Priority for participation goes to those residing in the NN/LM MCR. If you are not a librarian or have an equivalent degree or experience, you are encouraged you to argue your case for joining the Data Club with John Bramble or Alicia Lillich.
Minus the above restrictions, this is an open club but does requires registration (available at http://nnlm.gov/mcr/training-schedule)
The primary location for the Data Club is here in Moodle. Moodle will host the meeting notes, articles being discussed, offline discussion, etc.
The Data Club will meet via Adobe Connect for the monthly in-person meetings.
The structure of the Data Club will use both the MLA's Discussion Group Program structure along with the new PubMed Commons Journal Clubs (PCJC) structure.
