Health care access, serving patients, and working within your community is incredibly important work. To best do this work, we need to know who we are, what we bring to the table, and what we don’t know. Join in for a lively conversation to uncover what we don’t know, and how Step One is asking the right questions of ourselves and listening to others. Registration is encouraged.

Supporting Open Science in Health Science Libraries: Sharing Strategies for Sustainability and Success The NNLM PNR is hosting an introductory open science webinar as part of the NNLM RDM (Research Data Management) Working Group Webinar Series. In this webinar, two health sciences librarians will provide an overview of open science services (OSS) and research in libraries and outline the challenges encountered in supporting researchers in this space. We will engage attendees in a discussion of how libraries can build on their support of open science by aligning programs and services with the goals of their research communities and institutions. As practitioners, the presenters will also share ideas around adopting sustainable “open” approaches into their own work and research. If you are interested in knowing more about what the Open Science movement is in North America, this is the webinar for you.
