IMLS Leadership Grant on Open Civic Data Ecosystems - tobygreenwalt - 09-27-2017

Hoping this is the place for horn-tooting...

Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, in partnership with the University of Pittsburgh, has received an National Leadership Grant from IMLS to develop a toolkit for libraries to cultivate local open civic data ecosystems. A big part of this project will involve formulating cohorts of libraries to test best practices and offer feedback. 

We'd love to see feedback and contributions from the RIPL community. We're just getting the project off the ground, but we'll have more to share very soon.
