Open Data Literacy aims to prepare public information professionals to step up and make significant contributions to open data initiatives through the following:

  1. Curriculum for open data literacy and expertise, built on established, successful advances in data curation and data science education, and available online to reach students regardless of physical location
  2. Practical field experiences and mentoring, including mechanisms for bringing practice-based knowledge back into the classroom
  3. Continuing education and outreach to advance expertise for practicing librarians to advocate for and implement open data initiatives


Open Data Literacy is a collaborative project led by the Information School at the University of Washington in partnership with public institutions that create, manage, and publish open data. Open Data Literacy is funded by a generous grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
