Two birds one stone: Supporting data literacy and encouraging civic engagement using framework-inspired library programming

One of the challenges of supporting data literacy at the library is implementation across multiple levels of learning and areas of study. A similarly challenging task is encouraging civic engagement in and public understanding of government data -- especially important in recent years of political turmoil and shifting national policies on data and information. We’ll explore ways to accomplish both, by taking the audience through examples of library programming developed using the ACRL Framework, AASL and ISTE standards, and incorporating government data sources including: the US EPA’s EnviroAtlas, the US Census, and CitizenScience.gov.
