The IHS Library is pleased to congratulate Health Sciences Librarians, Kyle Downey and Peggy Dreker, on recent honors.
Kyle Downey was awarded the “Opportunity Meets Innovation (OMI) Challenge Grant” through Seton Hall University along with co-researchers, Dr. Lauren Snowdon and Dr. Angela Lis of the Physical Therapy program. This grant was designed to create interdisciplinary and collaborative research opportunities among faculty and students from different academic disciplines.
Their project, “Assessing the integration of evidence-based practice skills into clinical practice following curricular redesign” will look directly at outcomes of the embedded library curriculum Kyle has developed with the Dr. Snowdon and Dr. Lis.
Peggy Dreker was awarded “University Libraries Faculty Researcher of the Year” through Seton Hall University. Peggy received this honor at a March 31st Faculty Researcher and Teacher of the Year Awards luncheon presented by the Office of the Provost.
Peggy’s scholarship this past year was robust. She published 5 systematic reviews in scholarly medical journals, two book chapters on systematic review work, and an article on the innovative work done in the SOM’s PPPC curriculum. A listing of her scholarship can be found on her ORCID page.

You can access articles from these and thousands of other journals in our collection via the IHS Library website and searching databases such as PubMed and Scopus, or searching for individual journals via the main library search bar. You will then be prompted to enter your Seton Hall University ID and Password. If you do not have your SHU ID/Password, please reach out to the IHS Library at email@example.com.
We also encourage you to install the LibKey Nomad Chrome Extension, which automatically links to full-text content from websites such as PubMed, Wikipedia, Google Scholar and publisher websites. This extension is especially helpful if you find an article while searching outside the IHS Library website.
Students on the IHS Campus (CON, SHMS, and HMSOM) are encouraged to submit their art to be included in an art installation at the IHS Library!
Original art must be submitted by June 1. Check out the submission form here.
A reception for the show is scheduled for June 13th at 3:30pm.
This event is sponsored by HMSOM’s Art and Medicine Student Group and the IHS Library. Contact Allison Piazza at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
In October of 2020, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced its new Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy. Beginning in January 2023, this policy will require that all NIH researchers prospectively plan for how their scientific data and accompanying metadata will be preserved and shared by submitting a Data Management and Sharing Plan in their grant applications. This new plan goes into effect on January 25, 2023 replacing the current Data Management and Sharing Policy from 2003. The new policy continues NIH’s commitment to making sure that the results and outputs of NIH funded research are available to the public.
What do you need to know about the new NIH DMS policy?
- The new policy applies to any researcher funded in whole or in part by NIH whose research generates scientific data, whereas the current policy only applies to grants requesting more than $500,000 of direct costs in a single year.
- The policy requires investigators to submit an official Data Management and Sharing Plan as part of their request for funding. It does not require researchers to share data per se but expects them to maximize their data sharing. NIH strongly encourages the use of established repositories to the extent possible for preserving and sharing scientific data.
- It allows investigators to request funding for personnel costs or other fees related to data management and sharing activities; however, the money must be spent during the grant’s award period.
- Grant reviewers will see the data management plan and can comment on the budget, but plans are not used to determine the grant’s scientific merit.
- Researchers will need to think ahead when planning research projects to take data sharing into consideration. For example, those planning clinical studies will need to clearly communicate with prospective subjects via informed consent documentation about how their scientific data are expected to be used and shared.
- The approved plan becomes a part of the terms and conditions of the grant. Compliance will be monitored at regular reporting intervals and may factor into future funding decisions.
