On behalf of Kevin Read and Alisa Surkis from the NYU School of Medicine regarding the Research Data Management Modules:

We want to thank everyone for their willingness to participate in the pilot of our research data management education materials for medical librarians. At the current time, we are no longer seeking pilot participants. We also want to remind everyone that these modules are intended for medical librarians who have little to no experience in providing research data management services or training at their institutions.

For those of you who have already registered, we look forward to your feedback in preparing the final version of this educational material. Part 2 of the teaching toolkit, which includes slides, scripts and evaluation materials for you to teach an in-person introductory research data management class at your institution will be made available in September.

If we require more participants for the pilot in the future, we will let everyone know. Thanks again all for your participation. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.

Subject: Research Data Management Education Modules


We are helping NYU find pilot testers for these educational modules funded through the NIH Big Data to Knowledge Initiative.  The modules are open to all librarians at any skillset.


On behalf of Kevin Reed and Alisa Surkis, NYU School of Medicine:  We would like to request your participation in piloting research data management education materials for medical librarians. We are currently funded by a grant from the Big Data to Knowledge Initiative at NIH to develop a curriculum for medical librarians to facilitate their teaching research data management at their own institutions. There are two components to the training materials:

Part 1: Seven online modules (approximately three hours of content) designed to teach medical librarians about the practice and culture of research and best practices in research data management.

*         To take the modules, you must first register into our Compass Learning System: http://compass.iime.cloud/accounts/register/<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3a%2f%2furldefense.proofpoint.com%2fv2%2furl%3fu%3dhttp-3A__compass.iime.cloud_accounts_register_%26d%3dDQMFAg%26c%3dj5oPpO0eBH1iio48DtsedbOBGmuw5jHLjgvtN2r4ehE%26r%3dt1mh2UtvZxf_J0CtufUuVjRHj6jBWTLOi6IEQK7BaZs%26m%3d8cgnyc-jMhMx_Zlc7bbRl2ZjK_M7XOI11ILvjCELUK0%26s%3dVcUvo-iiJHPxi6oBRBpYTB8zvAEVUHqatloZHVMyHJ0%26e%3d&data=01%7c01%7crbarger%40pitt.edu%7c3fafa8973a644f5397b008d3c78a5f44%7c9ef9f489e0a04eeb87cc3a526112fd0d%7c1&sdata=AyIDtiv5P0U0CPSyAV9O06VMkhCBy3TN7je%2fk%2fCo43Q%3d> (you will receive an email requesting approval after you've registered)

*         Once you have registered, the modules can be found here (you will need to be signed in to take the modules): http://compass.iime.cloud/mix/G3X5E/<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3a%2f%2furldefense.proofpoint.com%2fv2%2furl%3fu%3dhttp-3A__compass.iime.cloud_mix_G3X5E_%26d%3dDQMFAg%26c%3dj5oPpO0eBH1iio48DtsedbOBGmuw5jHLjgvtN2r4ehE%26r%3dt1mh2UtvZxf_J0CtufUuVjRHj6jBWTLOi6IEQK7BaZs%26m%3d8cgnyc-jMhMx_Zlc7bbRl2ZjK_M7XOI11ILvjCELUK0%26s%3dfx-B864Z0EE837YTLDp-CN6GIN7aa0beK7SwNH8Um3M%26e%3d&data=01%7c01%7crbarger%40pitt.edu%7c3fafa8973a644f5397b008d3c78a5f44%7c9ef9f489e0a04eeb87cc3a526112fd0d%7c1&sdata=i5CAGorpO3TJNKdXRgIWNZEwLHggmBSjW3PoW4grp3U%3d>

Part 2: A teaching toolkit including slides, scripts, and evaluation materials to teach an in-person introductory research data management class for researchers at your institution.

We are currently seeking participants to pilot part 1. Following that, we will seek out a subset of participants with whom to pilot part 2, which will involve structured observations of classes taught by the librarians at their institutions. All participants in piloting part 1 will be given access to the materials in part 2, regardless of whether or not they are part of the piloting of those materials.

My colleague, Alisa Surkis, and I have been teaching research data management to our fellow medical librarians at the past three MLA annual meetings, based on our own experiences in providing research data management services at NYU School of Medicine. We hope that the materials we have created here will make the core elements of that class more broadly available to facilitate the teaching of research data management at medical libraries across the United States.

If you intend to take these modules, please contact Kevin Read at kevin.read at med.nyu.edu<mailto:kevin.read at med.nyu.edu> or Alisa Surkis at alisa.surkis at med.nyu.edu<mailto:alisa.surkis at med.nyu.edu> to confirm your participation. You do not need to await a reply from us to begin taking the modules.  We are also available to answer your questions at any time.
