May 7-8, 2014, CTG to Lead National Forum on the Critical Role of Public Libraries in Supporting Open Government  ▼  

The National Forum will focus on refining and improving a preliminary framework developed by CTG, in partnership with an advisory committee of public library, information and library science, and open government experts, to help public libraries describe their current open government related efforts and plan for future ones. The forum will also serve as an incubator to discuss potential future projects focused on further developing public library capabilities for supporting opening government within their communities.

January 5-6, 2012, Burke to Present on Public Value at the 2012 Winter ESIP Federation Meeting  ▼  

The 2012 Winter ESIP Federation Meeting will focus on the theme: Connections Through Collaboration: Engaging Community Throughout the Data Life Cycle. With increasing attention being paid to data systems interoperability both within and across science disciplines, the Federation of Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) plays an important role in bringing together organizations and individuals who make the connections - both human and technical - necessary to achieve integrated science. Brian Burke, along with Dan Ferguson, University of Arizona will lead the hands-on Evaluation Workshop: A Framework for Project Evaluation, which will focus on 1) why one evaluates data and their associated enabling technologies for discovery and distribution and 2) some basic methods for getting started with evaluating the impact of your own research or products. Burke will introduce CTG's Public Value Framework and how it uses the concept of public value to help government and those that work with government understand the tangible and intangible values that information can provide to multiple and often diverse stakeholders.
