    The Government Resources Section of the North Carolina Library Association welcomes you to a series of webinars designed to help us increase our familiarity with government information. All are welcome because government information wants to be free.

    “Should Libraries Be the Keepers of Their Cities’ Public Data?” was the headline of a February 19, 2019 CityLab article. It’s a great question that public and academic libraries should be discussing in the era of born digital, civic, open data. One such group that is helping library and government agencies work through this question and find ways for these groups to partner is the Civic Switchboard, https://civic-switchboard.github.io/post_14/. There are many reasons why libraries hosting open data seems like a natural fit. This webinar will feature one of the Civic Switchboard partners who are collaborating on ways to archive and preserve data from San Mateo County. The speakers will discuss their work, what their goals and challenges have been, as well as inspire participants to consider ways they can work with government agencies to collect, preserve, and even provide access to open government data.

    We will meet together online on Monday, November 18th from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. (Eastern). Please RSVP for the session using this link: https://tinyurl.com/grssession91

    Presenters: John Ridener has been the County of San Mateo’s Open Data Community Liaison since 2014 where he has worked to connect residents, community-based organizations, and researchers to the County’s open data (https://data.smcgov.org). He received a B.A. in American literature and history from Hampshire College in 1998 and an M.L.I.S. from San Jose State University in 2006. John has worked in public, law, and academic science libraries since 1998 and has lived in Oakland, CA since 2008. Kris Kasianovitz has been the Government Information Librarian for State, Local and International documents at Stanford Libraries since 2011 and the head of the Social Sciences Resources Group since 2017. She received a B.A. in Comparative Literature, Russian Studies, and Global Peace and Conflict Studies from the University of California Irvine in 1995 and a M.L.I.S from University of Illinois, Urban-Champaign in 2002. Kris has worked with government information in academic libraries since 1995. Kris is also a new resident of Oakland, CA aka the Town.

    We will use Zoom for the live session. Information on testing and accessing the session will be made available when you register. The session will be recorded and available after the live session, linked from the NCLA GRS web page (http://www.nclaonline.org/government-resources).
