Can we ensure that researchers and the public make informed decisions when using governmental data? Can data from different sources and agencies be used to build a more complete picture? James Church (University of California, Berkeley) will guide us into the world of international data. Bill Sermons (National Director of Research and Evaluation for Catholic Charities USA; Carnegie Mellon University) will discuss how a nonprofit makes use and sense of the data. Jill Blaemers will explain the challenges Sage DataPlanet faces in evaluating and making governmental data usable.

This project is organized by West Chester University, Stanford University, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and is made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (RE-252357-OLS-22).
