Describe your organization’s role in Research Data Management
Online training for librarians to learn the basics of RDM is being developed by a team of librarians. This peer-to-peer training program is called the Research Data Management Librarian Academy (RDMLA). Funding for the curriculum development was provided by Elsevier. The online curriculum consists of eight units and will be available to anyone for no charge this fall. Continuing education credit will be offered by Simmons University on a cost-recovery basis.
