Projects that are built on top of multiple open data sets are beginning to be more visible to the public. This virtual conference will serve as an expansive tour of a variety of open data projects from academia, local government, and other sectors. Looking for inspiration, useful examples or just the opportunity to learn what’s possible? This virtual event will spotlight novel approaches as well as practical activities.
Current thinking is that scientific research should be readily reproducible, discoverable, and openly accessible. There is also significant drive to develop open educational resources in the interests of easing economic burdens on student populations. The challenge then for libraries, content providers and platform providers is how best to implement strategies, technologies and practices in support of those concerns. But there are questions that must be addressed in discussing open science, open educational resources, open access monographs, etc. What supports are necessary in bringing this open approach into reality? What may be feasible in building an inclusive and collaborative knowledge infrastructure in this environment? What are key elements or best practices? What fiscal models or arrangements might be needed to ensure sustainability? Which sector (academic, government/public, commercial, etc.) is best positioned to muster the necessary resources?
