Are you an information professional experienced in research data management? Are you eager to share your knowledge with others and help expand the community of data librarians? The National Network of Libraries of Medicine Training Office has several opportunities for you to contribute to shaping a new training experience specifically for librarians.
Biomedical and Health Research Data Management Training for Librarians is an 8-week online class with engaging lessons and practical activities, starting in January 2018. Students will complete a capstone project at the end of the course and the experience will culminate in a Capstone Summit at NIH on April 10-11, 2018. A short description of the whole program can be downloaded here https://news.nnlm.gov/nto/wp-content/uploads/sites/13/2017/10/About_RDMTraining.pdf.
We are looking for experienced data librarians to participate in this project as module reviewers, co-teachers, and/or mentors. You may (and are encouraged to) apply for more than one role, and for more than one module. Compensation varies by role; more details here: https://news.nnlm.gov/nto/2017/10/04/call-for-reviewers-co-teachers-and-mentors/
