Reflections on a New RDM Course

By Elena Azadbakht, MSI, University of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg

I recently had the opportunity to participate in the inaugural Biomedical & Health Research Data Management for Librarians (mostly) online course, sponsored by the NLM and NNLM Training Office. I am one of about thirty librarians enrolled in the eight-week Moodle course, the online component of which concluded during the first week of March. Each module focused on a different aspect of research data management:

  • RDM Overview & Data Lifecycle
  • Data Curation & Documentation
  • Data Standards, Taxonomies, & Ontologies
  • Data Security, Storage, & Preservation
  • Data Sharing & Publishing
  • Data Management Plans
  • Data Wrangling
  • RDM at Your Institution
