The Research Data Management Librarian Academy (RDMLA) is a free online programwhich is the result of a successful partnership between a LIS academic program, academic health sciences and research libraries, and Elsevier.

See RDMLA features

This Academy is a terrific way for individuals to acquire knowledge about data-related services librarians can offer to their researchers. Experiences of those who have implement data services are shared as well as key lessons learned. One can take the units at their own pace and earn a certificate to indicate to future employers their skill development in RDM.
