Data Services at the NIH Library

Today’s data-intensive science provides new opportunities for discovery, but also presents new challenges as investigators struggle to find ways to manage their data.  The NIH Library is available to provide assistance throughout the entire research process, from project planning to post-project preservation, including help with:

  • locating existing data to re-use
  • preparing a data management plan
  • organizing and describing data to facilitate analysis, collaboration, and sharing
  • data mining and visualization
  • retention and long-term preservation

The NIH Library offers classes on a variety of data-related topics.  To see the current schedule and sign up for classes, please visit the Library's Training Schedule.  The Library also provides a Data Sciences workstation as part of the Technology Sandbox.  The workstation is loaded with specialized software for data analysis, processing, and visualization.  Visit the Data Sciences Workstation guide for more information about available software and how to use it.
