Data in Libraries: Open Data
March 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
Looking for big datasets for free? The U.S. Federal Government has been providing access to their statistical data for years, even before the Internet ever existed. Why? How do we get to the data? Will we always have access? Who has the best statistics? Why are other organizations now giving their numbers away for free also? Learn about where open data and statistics come from, ways to find, and issues on how to keep it coming along with where to join discussions and stay aware of developments in creating, access, retrieval, articulation, presentation, publishing, and curation of data and statistics.
