The University at Buffalo Libraries has been selected as an Awardee for the 2023-2024 All of Us Data Training and Engagement for Academic Libraries Program. Jocelyn Swick-Jemison, data services librarian, Ophelia Morey, coordinator, community outreach services, Elizabeth Stellrecht, head, health sciences library services, and Nicole Thomas, health sciences liaison librarian, submitted a project abstract outlining the Libraries’ plan to engage with a diverse group of students, faculty, and researchers by providing librarians with the necessary skill set to offer and support the data services program that are in development. As per the abstract, training and support will be provided in the form of workshops, classes and online resources to support all research being conducted on campus using the All of Us Researcher Workbench. The goal is to enable UB librarians the ability to create workshops, classes, online learning materials, videos, and other resources to support researchers in conducting high-impact research to benefit the Buffalo community.
The Academic Libraries Program will run from October 2023 until September 2024. Participation will be virtual through web-based meetings and trainings.
