Introducing NNLM RD3: Resources for Data-Driven Discovery

Posted Jun 20, 2017
Category: National

The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) is excited to announce a new web resource, NNLM RD3: Resources for Data-Driven Discovery.

NNLM RD3 is a place for librarians, information professionals, library and information science students, and interested individuals to learn about and discuss research data management throughout the data lifecycle for biomedical and scientific research.

NNLM RD3 evolved from the eScience Portal for Librarians (originally the New England eScience Portal for Librarians) that was developed under contract between the National Library of Medicine and the Lamar Soutter Library at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA. The NNLM appreciates the New England Region’s members and advisors who helped develop the original Portal, which provided a successful model and strong foundation for this new resource.

NNLM RD3 contains subject primers, professional development events, and information on the major components of research data management: data management, storage, and sharing. The subject primers provide introductory overviews on topic areas within data literacy, physical sciences, life sciences, and engineering.

Professional development opportunities will be continuously updated. The resources compiled on the site will help you learn the basics of data management and the ins and outs of data visualization, as well serve as a guide to regional and national level activities.

Core library and information science competencies in the areas of metadata, standards, citation, and information management are critical to enabling effective data-driven discovery. Librarians and information professionals translating these competencies to the realm of data are equipped to assist organizations in effectively managing, storing, and sharing data.

Visit NNLM RD3 to learn about resources and opportunities and to join the discussion.

The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) is supported by a cooperative agreement (UG4) that operates on a five-year cycle. As we prepare for the start of the next cycle (in May 2021), we are seeking input and feedback from the public on ways to ensure that the NNLM can continue to advance the progress of medicine and improve public health by providing U.S. health professionals with equal access to biomedical information and improving individuals' access to information to enable them to make informed decisions about their health.
