    • The Magic of Research Data: Librarians Learning Secrets of Data Management

      Davies, Kathy J; Seago, Brenda L; Robert B. Greenblatt, M.D. Library (Augusta University, 2018-11-19)
      Objective: Create a training program to increase library faculty knowledge of data management practices to facilitate developing a research agenda, collaboration with research community, and disseminating research findings. Methods: A librarian was selected to attend the Biomedical and Health Research Data Management for Librarians Course. The online course focused on data management topics including data curation, security, taxonomy, data sharing, resource data management, and publishing. The data management sills gained served as a foundation for instructional programming to enhance library faculty knowledgebase and explore potential library data management roles. The instructional program uses scaffolding by teaching an overview class and then integrating specific topics to meet institutional needs. Results: The librarian attendee developed a capstone template to help disseminate knowledge gained from the online course. The template facilitated the development of three goals: introduction of research data management basics, teaching targeted data management skills, and assessment of the research data management training program. The classes will be offered in late summer/early fall to health sciences and academic library faculty. A pre and post quiz will be distributed to determine knowledge gained. The librarian will collaborate with a new faculty position of Scholarship and Data Librarian to assess the level of data management services to be provided. The next phase is integrating data management services within embedded and liaison areas. Conclusions: Research Data Management is a natural fit for many librarians with a strong foundation in organizing, analyzing and providing access to information sources. The training program assists librarians to engage in the critical processes necessary for data sharing, scholarship, and research reproducibility.

    • Makerspace Mania! Developing a Makerspace in a Health Sciences Library

      Mears, Kim; Logue, Natalie; Kouame, Gail; Robert B. Greenblatt, M.D. Library (2017-04)
      Objectives: To advance the clinical and educational objectives of the university and to foster innovation by developing a makerspace in the health sciences library. Methods: A committee of three librarians investigated models of makerspaces in health sciences libraries and evaluated the current needs of faculty and staff for 3D printing and data visualization. A proposal was developed in three phases: information gathering, in-depth interviews, and cost-benefit analysis of equipment and program development. Results: During the information gathering stage, the committee reviewed a variety of sources such as websites, white papers, and listserv discussion threads on makerspaces in health sciences and academic libraries. Interviews were conducted with educational technology staff, health sciences faculty, research administration personnel, and a community technology hub. Equipment recommendations were selected during the cost-benefit analysis, which weighed the initial and continuing costs of equipment, the long-term goals of the makerspace, and the needs of the students and faculty. Location and training needs were also included in the proposal recommendations. Implementation of the makerspace is ongoing. Conclusions: Health sciences libraries are becoming more active in the development and implementation of makerspaces in health sciences libraries. Future considerations for the Greenblatt Library makerspace include outreach and promotion and the development of a sustainable funding model.
    • Making Magic: Fostering Innovation with a Creative Technology Lab in the Health Sciences Library

      Logue, Natalie; Kouame, Gail; Askew, Bettina; Nogales, Vonny; Robert B. Greenblatt, M.D. Library (Augusta University, 2018-11-19)
      Objective:To offer creative technology services in a health sciences library for innovation and prototyping. Methods: An academic health sciences library implemented a new maker space, the Creative Technology Lab (CTL), as part of a major renovation project in 2017/2018. The Creative Technology Lab provides 3D scanning and printing services, a Cricut machine, circuitry kits, and a lamination machine, with a high-definition data visualization display coming in the next year. Initial planning for the CTL focused primarily on 3D printing and scanning. The space allocated for the CTL was not ready during early phases of the renovation, so the 3D scanning and printing equipment was placed in another work area to allow library personnel to become familiar with how to use the equipment and accompanying software. The CTL Committee developed policies and procedures and posted job request forms to the library’s web page prior to the final placement of the 3D equipment in the CTL space. Interest and some requests immediately surfaced when equipment became available in the library.Results:When the CTL final location was unveiled, requests for 3D scanning and printing increased notably. The CTL is located directly inside the library’s main entrance and has a bank of windows,making it highly visible. In addition, the committee produced marketing materials and presented on the CTL in an online tutorial and at local faculty showcases. Faculty members and students from multiple disciplines have produced 3D printed tools and educational models. Conclusions:Having the Creative Technology Lab as a service at the health sciences library allows for the library to increase its visibility on campus to new users seeking to produce both prototypes and objects for practical uses. The biggest challenge for users of the CTL is understanding the technology and software, so providing feedback on designs and discussing project ideas has been repeatedly requested.
