Reserve a Workspace
Reserve a workspace to collaborate on a project, hold a small meeting, or explore a variety of licensed and open source software for 3D printing and modeling, bioinformatics, data visualization, online mapping and spatial data, video production and editing, and web and graphic design. The workspaces are open to NIH staff and are available during library business hours.
- Bioinformatics workspace can be reserved for up to eight hours per day.
- Our collobaoration pods or the data sciences workspace can be reserved up to four hours per day.
For questions call 301-496-1080, or visit the NIH Library Information Desk in Building 10, South lobby.
3D Printing & Modeling
NIH staff can now print and scan in 3D for free (see equipment and tools below), receive training on 3D printing and modeling, and explore 3D printing and modeling software (see list above under).
Attendance at a 60-minute orientation is REQUIRED prior to printing and your models MUST be NIH research- or work-related.
To learn more, visit our 3D Printing Services page.
Data visualization refers to the creation and analysis of visual representations of data, such as network visualizations, graphs, diagrams, models, and images. Data visualization tools allow users to clearly communicate their research results, as well as to visually represent data in new ways that allow for enhanced understanding and discovery.
