New grant explores “data literacy” education for scientists

March 5, 2012

Training & Education

In partnership with librarians at the University of Minnesota, the University of Oregon and Cornell University, Purdue University Libraries received nearly $250,000 from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to develop training programs for scientists. The training will enable the next generation of scientists to find, organize, use and share data more efficiently.

The U of M team, led by assistant librarians Lisa Johnston and Jon Jeffryes, will work with civil engineer Arturo Schultz to design a training program for his graduate students to better manage structural engineering data, such as structural health monitoring of bridges, including the new I-35W bridge.

The resulting training program will build on University Libraries’ expertise in digital data management and the successful “Creating a Data Management Plan for your Grant Application” workshops, which have been offered to faculty since December 2010.
