NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy: What is Expected of Researchers and How Can Libraries Help?

Three National Institutes of Health (NIH) officers will shed light on the new NIH Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy at this virtual panel discussion hosted by the University of Chicago Library.

The three NIH panelists are:

  • Lisa Federer, Acting Director, Office of Strategic Initiatives, National Library of Medicine (NLM), NIH. Federer serves as the principal advisor to the NLM Director on the Library’s strategic directions, including open science, analysis, evaluation, and reporting on NLM programs and activities.
  • Ellen Wann, Team Lead, Scientific Data Sharing Policy Division, NIH Office of Science Policy. Over the past four years, Wann has focused on DMS Policy issues, software sharing best practices, public private partnerships, consultation with American Indian/Alaska Native Tribes, and scientific collection policy areas.

The panelists will discuss planning for DMS, content of the DMS Plan, and compliance with an approved DMS plan. The discussion will be followed by a Q and A. This event will be moderated by Cecilia Smith, Director of Digital Scholarship at the UChicago Library.
