Civic Switchboard Field Project is sponsored by Civic Switchboard which is an Institute of Museum and Library Services supported effort that aims to develop and advance the capacity of academic and public libraries in civic data ecosystems. The project’s title is “Exploring the Baltimore Regional Study Archives and the Baltimore Vital Signs Open Data to Improve Quality of Life in Baltimore Neighborhoods.”
The Baltimore Regional Study Archives (BRSA) at the Robert L. Bogomolny Library (RLB) contains a wealth of archival information on Baltimore’s neighborhoods. These resources offer many pathways for potential users to work with open data prepared by the Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance (BNIA) for neighborhoods and track quality of life measures impacting their community. The purpose of this collaboration is to create a learning environment enhanced by pedagogical supports to enhance residents’ ability to access archival materials as well as open data and empower them to effectively “tell their story” about their neighborhoods. This guide trains librarians, faculty and community members on BNIA and BRSA resources and how to incorporate the materials into course lessons and research.
