Join Dr. Lisa Federer as she presents an introduction to the NIH Policy for Data Management and Sharing which will take effect at the start of next year. Following up nearly twenty years after the publication of the 2003 Final NIH Statement on Sharing Research Data, the NIH addresses the need for open data sharing as the world’s largest funder of biomedical research.

The new Final NIH Policy for Data Management and Sharing replaces the 2003 policy and requires researchers using NIH funds to plan early for research data management, with the expectation that data sharing is a fundamental component of the research process. Dr. Federer will provide her insight and perspective on the new DMSP (data management and sharing policy), comparisons with the 2003 policy, and supporting information that will help librarians stay informed of funder requirements as they work to advise researchers at their institutions.


  • Describe basic best practices in data management
  • Advise researchers on steps to adhere to the NIH DMSP requirement
  • Create a plan for outreach at their own institution
