Librarians working in data management: How to avoid a data management nightmare

I thought I would quickly share a video that I created in collaboration with two of my excellent colleagues — Karen Hanson and Alisa Surkis. We are developing short data management modules for a clinical department at our institution that will cover everything from selecting the right data collection tool to file naming conventions. This first video was developed to serve as a teaser for the more focused modules.

The first module has already been well received within the department we are working with, and we hope that this will catch on with other departments as we move forward. As always, I’m happy to hear feedback or answer questions about how we developed the module or what we’re using it for in more detail. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy:
