e-science sounds like something otherworldly and way out there for the "tech" savvy. The truth is all librarians are "tech" savvy, just by the nature of what they do every day. What is remarkable about what librarians do every day is that the whole of their institutions could use these talents. If you catalog, index, and offer knowledge-based information (KBI) to your institution, you are already involved in e-Science. In your institution, there are all kinds of data that needs your expertise in what to do with, how to organize, and how to present that data. By taking this course, you will have the basics of becoming an e-Science resource to your institution. You will receive training in applying librarian skills to the outside world and using the National Library of Medicine's (NLM's) Unified Medical Language System database and its application to managing data so that they can become a resource to the broader institution.
