University Center for Social and Urban Research   (Pittsburgh)

This is a presentation for the Ignite session, Part I at the NNIP Fall 2017 partners meeting

The University Library System at the University of Pittsburgh, in partnership with the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, the Western Pennsylvania Regional Data Center, and the Urban Institute, which supports and coordinates the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership, will develop the capacity of public and academic libraries to serve as key partners in local open civic data ecosystems. The project's primary output will be a guide and toolkit to help public and academic libraries: identify local needs and contexts around open civic data; consider roles, opportunities, practices, and governance in the civic data ecosystem; anticipate and address common challenges; measure local civic open data health and capacity; and learn from examples of successful civic data partnerships.
