First Tuesdays was designed as a continuing-education opportunity for staff of libraries in Washington State. This free web presentation, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., allows attendees to share their skills and successes and learn about new topics. The special-subject presentations, lasting about 60 minutes, are recorded so that others may listen at their own convenience.
Why Open Data Belongs at Libraries. December 4, 2018, 9:00 AM PACIFIC
What do libraries have to do with open government data found on data.wa.gov or local gateways like those for Seattle or Spokane? Plenty. In this webinar, participants will learn how libraries are connecting patrons to this emerging resource and helping local government become better open data publishers. They’ll also learn how libraries can use open data to improve their own operations. The webinar will include examples, tips and dozens of resources to support your library’s open data activity. Presented by Kathleen Sullivan, Washington State Library.
