From everyone at the Welch Medical Library! Let's all give thanks to our families, to the love we can share with others and the love we can bring into the world on a daily basis. We hope our friends and patrons feel the same way. Life is so big and wonderful, let's take a moment to appreciate all the ways we can share a bit of fellowship and kindness this holiday season.
Welch and Faculty Collaborators Awarded NLM Grant!
The Welch Library and faculty collaborators across the University were awarded by the National Library of Medicine under the NIH BD2K (Big Data to Knowledge) initiative a grant to develop online modules in data management: Training & tools for informationists to facilitate sharing of Next Generation Sequencing Data. Harold Lehmann and Anne Seymour are co-Pis and other key participants include Jonathan Pevsner and Sarah Wheelan (School of Medicine faculty); Blair Anton and Rob Wright (Welch Library); and Barbara Pralle, David Fearon, and Jen Darragh (Sheridan Libraries).
Our most recent Podcast is a roundtable Q&A with Dr. Harold Lehmann, Jen Darragh and Rob Wright (co-host and contributor) to more closely examine the "Big Data To Knowledge," (BD2K) grant.
