Abstract:The Open Data Literacy project is preparing future and current librarians to advance open data initiatives. This poster will provide an overview of the planned activities and project design, with a focus on strategies that iSchools can implement to collaborate with public sector partners to overcome the current lag in data expertise in the public library workforce. Core activities include new curriculum for master’s students in Library and Information Science, a slate of fieldwork opportunities at institutions managing and publishing open data, and community workshops and open education resources for public librarians and information professionals. The educational framework will improve public accessibility and use of open data while increasing the data capabilities of both new and practicing information professionals in public libraries.
