Civic Switchboard (2017) https://civic-switchboard.github.io/ @civicswitch Encourages partnerships between libraries and local data intermediaries; these partnerships will better serve data users, further democratize data, and support equitable access to information. The project will create a toolkit for libraries interested in expanding (or beginning) their role around civic information.
