Note: This event has already taken place, but a recording should be available soon.

The Greater Midwest Region (GMR) and South Central Region (SCR) of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) present the first jointly-sponsored webinar in the monthly Lake Effects and SCR CONNECTions series. The webinar, titled “Data Research Services: University of Michigan Experience”, will take place from 2:00 to 3:00 PM CST on Thursday, July 21.

This webinar session is focused on interviewing Jake Carlson and Marisa Conte, both who are involved in research data services at the University of Michigan. Join us to learn how data services support interactions between scientists and librarians, and how these interactions create new opportunities for health sciences libraries. Topics covered in this webinar include: needs assessments to inform a research data service, the importance of teaching data literacy, data management requirements from funding agencies, and the value of health sciences libraries as partners in data management.

Full biographies of Jake Carlson and Marisa Conte are available. This webinar will be available for 1 hour of Medical Library Association (MLA) Continuing Education credit and will be archived for future viewing.
