Open Data Summit a Success!

September 22, 2012

Thanks to all who attended and presented at the Open Data Summit on 21.09.12 in Vancouver! Thanks also to our co-hosts, the BC Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner, and Libraries and Literacy, Ministry of Education, BC.

The summit focused on exploring opportunities for open data learning and leadership in BC libraries.  Engaging speakers and sessions included how-to presentations, moderated panels on best practices, storytelling, other uses of open data and open data leadership for librarians. Open data newbies, early adopters and the curious left this summit thinking about the possibilities for using open data to support communities of users and libraries.
