[ARCHIVED] Slover Library Studios Data now in NorfolkOpenData

NORFOLK, VA – The Creative Studios at Slover Library comprise a Design Studio, Maker Studio, Production Studio, and a Sound Studio. These unique public spaces provide residents access to equipment and collaborative workspaces equivalent to that found in professional settings – as well as professional consulting.

Now, data on these studios including space and equipment usage is in NorfolkOpenData.

Michael Willits, programs manager at Slover Library, said when Slover staff set out to build, staff, and equip the spaces, "We didn't have good data to gauge what we needed. Nothing that was organized and consistent and gave us a baseline."

So Slover staff created its own dataset. 

"We made it up as we went along," Willits said. "The result was this dataset. Ultimately, we decided that if we needed this data other libraries might need it, too."

Slover’s data includes start and end times, duration and type of appointment, as well as calendars. A new data story helps illustrate how patrons use the studios and equipment. 

This dataset joins data on public safety, neighborhoods, code enforcement, economic development and parks and recreation on NorfolkOpenData. Feel free to view, download and analyze this data. The City of Norfolk provides this data as an affirmation of our commitment to transparency and community collaboration. We hope that you will use this data to improve your community, spark a business idea or just satisfy your curiosity. Data will be updated and expanded often as we work to build a comprehensive open data portal.
