Communicating and sharing our work

DG’s publication library includes resources, reports, white papers, policy briefs based on our data landscaping work, and more.

Written to be useful and usable, our Library is where we share learnings on barriers and incentives to data use, explore new ideas, and contribute to data policy and strategy conversations.
