Why Publish In The Journal Of Escience Librarianship?, Julie Goldman 2016 University of Massachusetts Medical School

Why Publish In The Journal Of Escience Librarianship?, Julie Goldman

Julie Goldman

Promotional flyer for the Journal of eScience Librarianship (JeSLIB), an open access, peer-reviewed journal published by the Lamar Soutter Library at UMass Medical School. JeSLIB advances the theory and practice of librarianship with a special focus on services related to data-driven research in the physical, biological, social, and medical sciences, including public health.


Integrating Data Management Tools Into Research Data Management Instruction, Rebecca Reznik-Zellen, Lisa A. Palmer, Julie Goldman 2016 University of Massachusetts Medical School

Integrating Data Management Tools Into Research Data Management Instruction, Rebecca Reznik-Zellen, Lisa A. Palmer, Julie Goldman

Julie Goldman

Purpose: This poster describes the efforts to integrate RDM (research data management) tools, such as electronic lab notebooks and the DMPTool, into RDM instruction for students at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.

Setting: Flexible Clinical Experiences (FCEs) are short (one-week), student-driven or pre-designed for-credit courses available to third-year medical students at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. FCEs allow students to explore an area of clinical interest, to be exposed to medical specialties, or to pursue further learning in a specific field. The Lamar Soutter Library designed and offered an FCE on data management principles and best practices in ...

Serving An Information Potluck At The Research Data Management Roundtable, Thea Atwood, Julie Goldman, Tom Hohenstein, Carolyn V. Mills, Sally Wyman

Julie Goldman

Objectives: The Research Data Management Roundtables are a collaborative effort to address the shared challenges relating to data services and the role of the library. Outside of listservs, conferences, or other multi-day events, there are few means to discuss issues related to beginning or sustaining data management initiatives among organizations, libraries, and librarians. The Roundtables are one method to address this issue.

Methods: The New England eScience Program (NN/LM NER) sponsored two Roundtable discussions in 2015. Each was a one day event, and included an activity based in the local area and the Roundtable discussion. Around twenty librarians from ...

The Role Of Librarians In Data Science: A Call To Action, Elaine R. Martin 2016 University of Massachusetts Medical School

The Role Of Librarians In Data Science: A Call To Action, Elaine R. Martin

Journal of eScience Librarianship

Many academic institutions and their libraries have developed research data services, but sometimes institutional objectives, professional organizations, and librarians’ current and future roles aren’t always in sync. In this issue of the Journal of eScience Librarianship, librarians report on moving forward with various services, but frequently face institutional and professional obstacles.


We Have Only Scratched The Surface: The Role Of Student Research In Institutional Repositories, Becky Thoms, Betty Rozum 2016 Utah State University

We Have Only Scratched The Surface: The Role Of Student Research In Institutional Repositories, Becky Thoms, Betty Rozum

Library Faculty & Staff Presentations

Student research, in the form of theses and dissertations, is nearly ubiquitous in institutional repositories (IRs) across the US. However, students at many institutions contribute far more to the scholarly landscape of their communities. This presentation will explore this untapped well of potential material, report on survey data about perceptions of possible benefits of archiving this student work, and encourage discussion of this exciting new avenue of opportunity for libraries.

Assessment Of And Response To Data Needs Of Clinical And Translational Science Researchers And Beyond, Hannah F. Norton, Michele R. Tennant, Cecilia Botero, Rolando Garcia-Milian

Journal of eScience Librarianship

Objective and Setting: As universities and libraries grapple with data management and “big data,” the need for data management solutions across disciplines is particularly relevant in clinical and translational science (CTS) research, which is designed to traverse disciplinary and institutional boundaries. At the University of Florida Health Science Center Library, a team of librarians undertook an assessment of the research data management needs of CTS researchers, including an online assessment and follow-up one-on-one interviews.

Design and Methods: The 20-question online assessment was distributed to all investigators affiliated with UF’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) and 59 investigators responded ...


Creating Green Open Access To Institutional Scholarship Using Digital Commons, Deborah L. White, Yumi Ohira 2016 Pittsburg State University

Creating Green Open Access To Institutional Scholarship Using Digital Commons, Deborah L. White, Yumi Ohira

Nebraska Library Association Conferences

Has your institution mandated an Institutional Repository for open access? Do you feel intimidated by working with two digital repositories simultaneously? We will share our success and experience of working with two repositories with a small staff at two small universities in rural Kansas.

The repository serves as a Green Open Access solution to globally share. Both Pittsburg State University (PSU) and Fort Hays State University (FHSU) currently use CONTENTdm (CDM) as their primary digital repository. In 2015 both PSU and FHSU purchased and launched BePress Digital Commons (DC), a more robust repository. If you see global discoverablility, unlimited storage ...


An Overview Of Free And Useful Resources From The National Library Of Medicine, Alicia Lillich 2016 National Network of Libraries of Medicine

An Overview Of Free And Useful Resources From The National Library Of Medicine, Alicia Lillich

Nebraska Library Association Conferences

It’s hard out there for a librarian supporting health and/or science programs. You’re expected to provide access to cutting-edge research, without breaking the bank on costly subject-specific databases. Luckily, the National Library of Medicine (NLM) can help. NLM, a division of the National Institutes of Health, is the world’s largest medical library whose mission is to advance the progress of medicine and improve health through access to health information. This session will focus on the free products and services offered through NLM such as online databases, training, and promotional/educational resources. This will include: MedlinePlus, PubMed ...
