Library 2.019 Conference: Open Data
Local, state and federal governments are releasing data, the public’s data, in new ways. Property maps, 311 data, school quality information and census statistics — all of these are examples of open data that give people the tools they need to learn and advocate for their causes. This free web conference will explore how librarians are using open data, teaching others about it, and even creating it. You’ll learn about tools you can implement in your own library and hear stories from libraries that have partnered with their local and state governments. Armed with practical tools and experiences, you’ll be ready to start diving into open data to help your library and community! Visit the conference web page for more information.
