Reminder: ACRL offering online course on data management plans

Registration is available for the upcoming ACRL e-Learning online course, “What You Need to Know about Writing Data Management Plans.” The course will be offered July 14-August 1, 2014.

Demand for data management plan consultants is growing as more granting agencies add this requirement. Most presentations concerning data management do not provide practical advice on how to consult with researchers writing a data management plan for grant submission. This course teaches you about the elements of a successful data management plan, and provides practice critiquing data management plans in a supportive learning environment where no grant funding is at stake. Join two experienced data management plan consultants with experience in liaison librarianship and information technology as they demonstrate how all librarians have the ability to successfully consult on data management plans. Examine how data and metadata are defined, open data formats, dark archives, and secure repositories as well as addressing specialty concerns. Each week requires approximately 3-5 hours of primarily asynchronous activities including assigned readings, written lecture, discussion questions, weekly assignments, and live chats with the instructors.

Presenters: Dee Ann Allison, Professor, University of Nebraska-Lincoln; Kiyomi Deards, Assistant Professor, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
