About Julie Goldman

Julie Goldman, BS, MLIS, is the Countway Research Data Services Librarian with the Harvard Library. Julie is collaborating with members of the Harvard University community to help build a new data services program, and working at Countway Library of Medicine to develop and deliver services directly to researchers at Harvard Medical School. Julie is also the Managing Editor for the Journal of e-Science Librarianship.

As co-PI on a NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) Initiative for Resource Development of a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) for Research Education (Award Number R25LM012284; 2015-2018), Julie served as the Project Manager focused on content review, curriculum creation, videorecording, focus group leader, and Canvas course facilitator. The Best Practices for Biomedical Research Data Management course provides training to librarians, biomedical researchers, undergraduate and graduate biomedical students, and other interested individuals on recommended practices that facilitate the discoverability, access, integrity, reuse value, privacy, security, and long term preservation of biomedical research data. This MOOC is built upon and expands the training materials of the New England Collaborative Data Management Curriculum (NECDMC), driven by collaboration between a variety of librarians, researchers and others, and provides a user-driven, self-paced, interactive online course.
