This is a project of the City of Saint Paul. This effort is supported by the Civic Switchboard Project which receives funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services #LG-70-17-0146-17.

Saint Paul Public Library in partnership with the City of Saint Paul’s Office of Technology & Communication was awarded a Civic Switchboard Field Project Award. This national project aims to develop a toolkit that will help libraries across the country form partnerships within their local civic data environment. These partnerships will help the library improve service for data users, support equity in access to information and continue the work of democratizing data.
