Collection Development Manual

Datasets


This category includes structured collections of related digital files.
NLM also may acquire selected datasets that are germane to research initiatives at the Library. For example, the Library's Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications acquired datasets from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES II and III, produced by the National Center for Health Statistics), and developed research tools that offer access to NHANES data.
Since many datasets of potential use to biomedical researchers and health professionals are archived by institutional repositories, such as government agencies and major research institutions, NLM may provide access to this data via Internet links from the Library's Web pages or online public access catalog.
