Abstract

The Lamar Soutter Library at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and the George C. Gordon Library at Worcester Polytechnic Institute have been awarded an Institute of Museum and Library Service National Leadership Planning grant. With this grant, the two libraries collaboratively developed an instructional framework and delivery system for openly-accessible, online instructional modules for preserving, managing, and sharing digital data. When fully implemented, these modules will be delivered to students in science courses at both institutions-- from first-year science and engineering students, to graduate-level medical, nursing, and biomedical students. An overview of the grant and the curriculum were presented.
