The Civic Switchboard Institute in South Bend will bring together 20 library workers and data intermediaries who are working with or developing new civic data roles and projects in their libraries.

By participating in the Institute, you can:

Connect with other regional library workers and expand a community of practice focused on libraries and civic data;
Explore your civic data ecosystem and potential roles for your library;
Connect with exemplars of library civic data intermediary work by engaging with the work of host sites;
Discover critical dimensions of data work, including power, social justice, and responsible data practices to mitigate harms;
Help improve civic data educational materials for a library audience.
The Institute is designed around several hands-on activities that will help participants get a better handle on their own civic data ecosystems, design local roles, and learn from peers from across the region.

Through the support of the IMLS grant, participants are eligible to receive an honorarium to offset travel expenses. The honorarium will be disbursed to individuals. Applicants based in South Bend are encouraged to apply to the workshop but will not be eligible for the honorarium.
