"Today, we’re happy to announce a new IMLS funded project led by the Information School (iSchool) at the University of Washington. Open Data Literacy (ODL) will be a three year project focused on improving accessibility and use of open data by communities that can benefit most from public sector information. Practically, ODL will advance data literacy by developing new curriculum for iSchool students and public librarians; coordinating internships, fieldwork, and action research projects between UW and public institutions with open data initiatives, and; producing community workshops and open education resources that are freely available to the general public."
