Description
This presentation explores the civic role of libraries in relation to the open data movement. Where do cities and libraries intersect? How can we support digital literacy, promote civic participation and leverage the knowledge found in our communities? We discuss two events that took place in Edmonton in 2014 as case studies for these issues: Edmonton Public Library’s Open Data Day and hackYEG, local hackathons that brought together the library, the city, local data enthusiasts and an international community of civic hackers. Drawing on the philosophy of participatory learning, we argue that providing open data as part of library services supports an increasingly popular and important method of accessing and utilizing knowledge for all types of libraries.
