Research Support

Informationist Support
Library faculty partner with basic sciences researchers to enhance research team productivity. Routine support is provided through the libraries' Liaison Program, and through curating resources and tools of value to basic scientist as seen in the Basic Science Toolkit.

Dedicated, in-depth support of research teams is possible through various funding mechanisms, including: 

Data Management
The library offers assistance in complying with data sharing policies such as through the identification of appropriate discipline-specific repositories. Librarians are also available to assist in locating external datasets, writing data management plans, and identifying data management resources. The library also offers data management education that can be tailored to the needs of your department or lab.

Use the data catalog to access to large datasets available either publicly or through institutional or individual licensing. Dataset records include information about the content of the dataset, how to access the dataset, and local experts within NYULMC and NYU to assist in the use of these datasets.

Systematic Review Support
RECS faculty have deep expertise in supporting research teams conducting a systematic review of the scientific literature. Beyond the expertise to conduct the required systematic searching of published and grey literature, faculty have formal training and experience in the overall process of conducting and publishing a systematic review in line with IOM Standards and the PRISMA Guidelines.

Additional information on systematic reviews and the assistance available from RECS faculty is available via our Systematic Reviews subject guide.
