What Research Data Services Are You Looking For?

ecclesBothOver the past decade there has been an increased emphasis on research data management and sharing. In addition to many funding agency mandates, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy issued a memorandum in 2013 requiring all federal agencies that conduct more than $100 million dollars a year in R&D to develop plans to support increased public access to the results of their research. The University of Utah supports this effort to make the results of research — including the underlying data — transparent and replicable.

EHSL continues on as the MidContinental Region RML

10321169_10153323258170919_5731270320908391024_oWe are honored to announce that the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library (EHSL) will continue as the Regional Medical Library (RML) for the MidContinental Region and that we will continue to coordinate national training under the new title of NN/LM Training Office (NTO) beginning May 1, 2016. It is policy that the state’s congressional delegation be given the opportunity to announce federal funding before the funding agency makes the announcement. Utah’s delegation was notified on March 31, 2016 and a representative from Senator Hatch’s office sent Jean Shipman, Director of EHSL, a congratulatory email.

The staff for the NN/LM MidContinental Region and the NN/LM Training Office are ready to begin the implementation of the great ideas that they submitted to the National Library of Medicine (NLM) in their proposals.

The official announcement appeared on April 1 (fortunately not a joke) on the NLM web site: https://www.nlm.nih.gov/news/nlm-rml-coop-agreement-2016.html
