Description

Purpose: This poster examines the initial development and integration of instruction about data information literacy on a small, liberal-arts college campus in collaboration with the Institutional Review Board.

Setting/Participants/Resources: The Jane Bancroft Cook Library at New College of Florida has a science librarian serving as a member of the Institutional Review Board.

Brief Description: While serving as a member of the Institutional Review Board (IRB), the librarian noticed a lack of campus knowledge and consensus about data management standards. Partnering with fellow IRB members and the Office of Research Programs and Services, the librarian developed instruction for students and faculty about data management. This poster describes the librarian’s analysis of the issue, planning process, selection of methods, design of materials, and review of an in-person workshop.

Results/Outcome: Collaborating with other members of the IRB, the librarian analyzed IRB proposals for lack of attention to data management, then developed materials and presented an in-person workshop based on this analysis. To further campus knowledge of data management, the librarian has developed a pre- and post-workshop survey for participants and will be developing an e-learning module for use on campus.

Evaluation Method: To determine a need for data information literacy on campus, IRB proposals for twenty projects were evaluated with regard to their data management strategies. Data security, privacy, retention, sharing, and publication were considered. Fourteen of the twenty, or 70%, of the proposals required revisions based on a lack of adequate attention to data management.
