The NIH Library is Participating in "Friday Before Pi Day: A Pi Day Celebration"

Join the NIH Library in celebrating Pi Day—a day early, on Friday, March 13th. Hosted by the Office of Data Science Strategy, Friday Before Pi Day will be a Friday-the-13th inspired event that celebrates the wonders of Pi and highlights the role of data science and mathematics in biomedical research. The NIH Library is collaborating with the Office of Data Science Strategy and with staff from OD, NLM, CIT, NIAID, and NCI to plan this event.

The event begins at 9:00 a.m., in Building 35, and will include Data Horror Stories, Pi-tionary (3:14-minute illustrated lightning talks), Pi trivia, and a keynote lecture from data scientist Rebecca Nugent, Ph.D., an award-winning professor of statistics and data science at Carnegie Mellon University. More details are available on the Pi Day celebration page.

The NIH Library's set of Data Services offers assistance with understanding and managing data throughout the entire research process. The NIH Library provides data science literature and software, including a dedicated, high-performance workstation offering a suite of tools for data analysis, management, processing, and visualization which can be reserved for up to 4 hours per day.

The NIH Library in Building 10 serves the information needs of NIH staff and select Department of Health and Human Services agencies. The NIH Library is part of the Office of Research Services in the Office of the Director. NIH Library classes, events, resources, and services, subscribe to our e-news.
