Hi all –
This is a great opportunity for any library looking to get involved with
civic data in their community. This comes from Civic Switchboard, an
IMLS-supported effort to build capacity for academic and public libraries
in civic data ecosystems. (Full disclosure: I’m part of the project team.)
Please pass along to anyone who might be interested.
Library and Data Friends,
Today we are excited to open the call for proposals for Civic Switchboard 2020
Between 2017-2019, we hosted two workshops and funded nine library projects

Field Project awards extends this work.
*In 2020, **Civic* *Switchboard* we will support an additional six Field
Projects, and the awards will combine a stipend for project support with a
workshop for awardees facilitated by the Civic Switchboard team.
*Check out the **Call for Proposals
