We invite you to apply for an educational pilot class, “Ethical Considerations of Data: A Curriculum for Health Sciences Librarians”, hosted by NYU Health Sciences Library. This three-session training is oriented towards medical and academic librarians as well as LIS students and will center on ethical frameworks, data collection, and data visualization.

Each session will be 90 minutes long and will take place in late March (see full schedule below). We have 20 spots available for this pilot and require participants to attend all three sessions. To apply, please fill out this application.

Applications are due Tuesday, February 23, and applicants will be notified by February 24, 2021. Participation is free and gift cards of $100 will be given to each participant.

Curriculum Overview:

As librarians and researchers alike encounter new technologies and methodologies for collecting, analyzing, and disseminating data, they must also grapple with corresponding ethical issues. In order to assist librarians with these concerns, this class aims to provide an intellectual grounding for the recognition, analysis, and resolution of ethical issues, including but not limited to ethical problems in data management,  data collection, data visualization. This class focuses on issues that health sciences librarians may face, particularly regarding human subjects and patient data, but it will be generalizable to the larger library community.
