Description: As the National Library of Medicine transitions to become a platform for biomedical discovery and data-powered health, one area of focus is building a workforce for data-driven research and health. In support of this strategic goal, NLM launched Data Discovery, an online platform for making data findable, interoperable, accessible, and reusable (the FAIR principles). In addition to browser-based exploration, filtering, and visualization of data, Data Discovery includes Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to help researchers and developers build applications that leverage its datasets.
Pillbox, NLM’s pill identification and reference resource, long overdue for redesign, was rebuilt using Data Discovery as its foundation to showcase the power of this platform.
This session will:
1) provide a brief history of these efforts as they relate to NLM’s 2017-2027 Strategic Plan,
2) demonstrate how to explore, filter, and create visualizations using NLM datasets hosted on Data Discovery, and
3) demonstrate the redesigned Pillbox website and illustrate how hosting its data on Data Discovery empowers users without disrupting the traditional web application experience.
Speaker Bio: David Hale is an Information Technology Specialist at the National Library of Medicine, part of the National Institutes of Health. In addition to leading Data Discovery, he is also project lead for NLM’s Pillbox, a drug identification, reference, and image resource. Mr. Hale received his Bachelor of Science in Physical Science from the University of Maryland.
