National Library of Medicine Resources for Citizen Scientists Citizen science is an amazing way to participate in research efforts, and it can often be done from a mobile device, from one’s home, or from a library. Libraries are ideal partners for citizen scientists! In this class, participants can expect to learn how to support citizen science in their communities and ways that libraries can easily participate. Participants will learn about citizen science library program models, free National Library of Medicine resources to incorporate into citizen science library programs, and sources of funding to explore for buying testing kits or supporting community research efforts. Citizen science library programs are perfect for all ages, and all types of libraries. Nor prior scientific knowledge is required, simply a willingness to participate!

Operationalizing the CARE Principles for Indigenous Data Governance in Research Data Management Problems of inequity continue in the ways Indigenous Peoples’ data is created, stored, accessed, and used. The articulation of Indigenous Peoples’ rights and interests in data about their peoples, communities, cultures, and territories is directed towards reclaiming control of data, data ecosystems, and data narratives in the context of open data and open science. This webinar will focus on the CARE Principles (Collective Benefit, Authority to Control, Responsibility, and Ethics) and identify practical tools for implementing the CARE Principles alongside the FAIR Principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) in the context of the open science and open data environments. This webinar will be of interest to those working with Indigenous data or collections, as well as metadata librarians and those interested in open access policies and managing institutional repository. This session is part of the NNLM Research Data Management Series (RDM) intended to increase awareness of RDM topics and resources. The session will be recorded.

NNLM Resource Picks: PubMed Central
PubMed Central(r) (PMC) is a free full-text archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature at the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) National Library of Medicine (NLM). The presentation will consider PMC’s role in supporting open access and discovery of research results as well as open data sharing, and look at how that role is evolving in response to changes in research funder priorities and the current public health emergency. Join us to learn about ways you can use PMC to support open access research! The session will be recorded.
