  • Putney Library in the 1960s. Libraries are places where books (and magazines, newspapers, audio, video, etc) are stored, but are much more than simply a content-store. Everyone loves libraries.
  • Presenting the draft 5-star structure to Data Engagement that emerged from work by Tim Davies, Liz Stevenson, Anthony Zacharzewski, Jon Foster and Jag Goraya at UK GovCamp 2012. See http://bit.ly/data_stars for more information.
  • Here we map this to more of a 5-part “data lifecycle” than a 5-star structure. It’s possible to do some stages without others.
  • An example of showing search stats from behind the scenes at http://www.data4nr.net/
  • Databridge was a project which OCSI worked on with Jo Ivens, helping a charity called Amaze (http://www.amazebrighton.org.uk/) to aggregate, correlate and display data. See http://databridgeuk.wordpress.com/ for more information on Databridge.
  • An example of a small report published by Warwickshire Observatory (http://www.warwickshireobservatory.org/) – see http://wp.me/pGw9x-J2 for the original report. Of interest here is the very immediate inclusion of how the figures were calculated, and the associated explanatory notes.

    • 1. LIS and Data Engagement Graham Lally Oxford Consultants for  Social Inclusion [email_address] http://www.ocsi.co.uk/
    • 2. Coming up
      • Data Engagement
        • What is it?
        • How can it be done?
    • 3. What are we talking about?
      • Go beyond just providing data - helping people to get the most use out of it too.
      • "A commitment to open data involves making information and data resources accessible to all without discrimination; and actively engaging to ensure that information and data can be used in a wide range of ways ."
      • " [We need a way to] ... get beyond simply publishing datasets , and get to  supporting people to use data  to create social, economic and administrative change. "
      • - UK GovCamp 2012

      • Libraries Have:
        • A lot of different content
