Selected Resources

On this page, we've selected and described some resources that we think are relevant to the "Engaging" section.
Center for Community Health and Development at the University of Kansas. "Creating and Maintaining Partnerships." part of Community Tool Box.
The skills and techniques of building community partnerships are not unique to libraries and other data intermediaries. This toolkit, part of a larger resource supporting community-based work, gives specific, practical guidance on developing and maintaining partnerships.
Headd, Mark. (n.d.). How to Talk to Civic Hackers.
Mark Headd, the former Chief Data Officer for the City of Philadelphia, focuses on slightly different, but adjacent, kind of partnership: government employees collaborating with volunteer technology groups. There is plenty of relevant and detailed information for libraries and data partners here; in particular you may want to look at the Strategies for Engagement section.
