TRAIL TALKS Today: Jean Shipman, LiveStories, LEAF

Join the UW Health Sciences Library in the HSL Pacific Room, T219, on August 8th for three data oriented presentations!

10 – 11:30 am
Librarians as Part of Research Teams
Jean Shipman MSLS, Vice President, Global Library Relations, Elsevier

Information, particularly data, is a key component of research. Elsevier is supporting researchers with interoperable tools and solutions to address the complete research lifecycle. Librarians can take a lead on assuring researchers maximize use of key research tools, and thus can play a vital role with their institution’s research success. Come hear about the research data management (RDM) training Elsevier and a team of Northeastern librarians are creating to assist librarians with securing important RDM skills as well as other news about Elsevier’s partnership with librarians.

11:30 – 12:30 pm
Adnan Mahmud, CEO

LiveStories is a Seattle-based company that makes it easy to work with civic data that can be spread over multiple sources. They bring together data, tools, and experts in to a single place. During the demo LiveStories will showcase the tools being used by Health Sciences Library already and how others around UW can take advantage of the tools.

1 – 2 pm
Bas de Veer MS, Bio-Medical Informatics Services Manager, UW Medicine IT Services

Bas de Veer, the BMI Services manager, will demonstrate Leaf, the UW medicine’s home grown cohort discovery tool. He will show how to quickly build and run queries against the entire UW Medicine data warehouse and what to do with the results. If you have a specific question in mind like (I wonder how many diabetics have had broken legs), feel free to bring that to the meeting. We’ll see if we can get an answer.

Questions may be directed to Ann Madhavan.
