Alaska State Library partnership gets $9,000 to assess data usage

The grant will support data valuation work for Alaska’s Statewide Data Hub project.

The Alaska State Library and the Office of Management were awarded a $9,000 grant.

The agencies were one of nine partnerships nationwide awarded a Field Project grant from Civic Switchboard. The grant will support data valuation work for Alaska’s Statewide Data Hub project. During the valuation process, the partnership will survey stakeholders to create a statewide data ecosystem map. The map will identify sources of data within state government, and how that data is currently accessed and used.

When the map is complete, the project will convene state, community and business representatives to analyze the ecosystem, identify missing connections or perspectives, deficient resources and infrastructures, and other gaps and weaknesses, as well as strengths and opportunities.
