D202 - Engaging With Partners to Open Data11:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
The IDB is the leading source of development financing for Latin America and the Caribbean and a large producer of knowledge. The library has evolved greatly during the last few years from the traditional reference-based service to an embedded librarian model, most recently it is adding new services related to data. Recently the IDB has begun opening their data, and the library is a full partner in this process. It designed a new interactive open data platform that pulls data from three existing data bases, allowing everyone to compare indicators across sectors for the first time. The library is working with IDB specialists and researchers to upload its data into our Open Data catalog, which not only centralizes all of this valuable knowledge, but allows for use, reuse, and visualization by everyone. Get tips and best practices for engaging with researchers to share data.
