Project Dataforce

September 28, 2015

We’ve expanded on Re-envisioning Branch Libraries to submit to the Knight News Challenge, “How might we make data work for individuals and communities?

The Knight Foundation is hosting an open call for for ideas that use data to inform and empower people to make decisions about their lives and their communities, and they are offering grants to the winning submissions. With help from our teammates at METRO, Pratt’s School of Information and Library Science, and Office:MG, we plan to empower librarians to act as data interpreters, curators, and storytellers by extending Data / City tools and training.

Anyone is welcome to provide feedback, be it a comment or a like. We’ll have an opportunity refine our submission based on your ideas and questions. Read about our project here to share your feedback.
