Help! I’m an Accidental Government Information Librarian presents ... The APIs of Data.gov

The Government Resources Section of the North Carolina Library Association welcomes you to a series of webinars designed to help us increase our familiarity with government information. All are welcome because government information wants to be free.

Have you ever heard people talking about APIs and wondered what they are and why someone would use them? Have you ever tried to use Data.gov and felt overwhelmed by all of the different data formats available? This webinar aims to answer these questions by explaining APIs and their purpose, showing how to navigate Data.gov and understand the different data types offered, and demonstrate how you can leverage APIs in your projects.

Julia Frankosky is the Government Information Librarian at Michigan State University. She received a MLIS from Wayne State University and a B.A. in History from Michigan State University.
