Over 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.

Leea Dilling is a photography student at BYU Idaho who has just completed her BFA. For her senior project, she wanted to highlight the importance of organ donation. Here is a link to her pictures in book form: http://www.mixbook.com/photo-books/interests/bfa-book-13162130?vk=9uCgwu59mE.
On April 6, Amy Sibul from the Biology Department and two students presented at the Birds and the Bees Appy Hour. With springtime approaching, it is a fun time to watch wildlife, and yes, there are apps for that!
Join us at the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library for a break with the sweet therapy dogs courtesy of Therapy Animals of Utah.
We 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
Mayor Biskupski proclaimed March 29 as Kristen Ries and Maggie Snyder Day. Dr. Kristen Ries and Maggie Snyder PA-C opened the AIDS/HIV clinic at University Health Care in 1994. They treated the majority of HIV/AIDS patients in the Mountain West since then. Dr. Ries states, “It was never my intent to become an activist. But I just knew I could protect myself against HIV/AIDS with the same protocols I would use for any other infectious disease. So we forged on with knowledge and naiveté. I care for the underserved because I believe everyone deserves reasonable care.” We honor their compassionate service to humanity.
