Showing the importance of civic data

What's the need?

  • Many people aren't aware of what civic data is, how it can be used, and how it is relevant to them.

Why the library?

  • The library supports broad and diverse audiences, many of whom may not be included in conventional discussions around data.

  • Libraries are physical spaces for sharing activities, projects, and stories from the broader community

What you can do:

  • Promote, through storytelling and case studies, projects that use civic data

  • Host data art installations, speaker series, data book clubs
