Summary:  The New England Collaborative Data Management Curriculum (MECDMC) offers openly available materials that librarians can use to teach research data management best practices to students in the sciences, health sciences and engineering fields, at the undergraduate and graduate levels.  The materials in the curriculum are openly available, with lecture notes and slide presentations that librarians teaching RDM can customize for their particular audiences.  The curriculum also has a database of real life teaching research cases that can be integrated into the curriculum to address discipline specific data management topics.
This webinar will introduce attendees to the curriculum and the issues surrounding teaching research data management.  Some libraries in New England have agreed to pilot the curriculum and we are looking for additional pilot sites outside our region.  Attendees will be encouraged to review the curriculum and consider joining the collaboration by piloting the curriculum and participating in an evaluation process, which will be explained further during the webinar.
3D Printing and Why Your Library May Be Interested? (EXPANDED and UPDATED)
  • Back by popular demand!
  • Expanded and updated!
In September we held a webinar on 3D printing.  Unknown to us at the time, there were technical issues behind the scenes that resulted in no recording of the session.  Since the session proved to be so popular, we’ve asked the speakers to return.  They have expandedand updated their talks since their September presentations.
