The importance of communicating library value is widely accepted and understood- data visualization is a particularly powerful tool for doing just that. Using data visualization offers an opportunity to empower librarians, their users, and their stakeholders. Visualization is a way to create dynamic, engaging, and intuitive interactive resources which can serve as tools for education and outreach.

Leverage data in your library by developing powerful visualizations based on your institution’s collection data. In this hands-on, day-long session, participants will apply visualization to their own usage and holdings data.

Attendees will learn techniques to examine, select and interpret datasets for visualization. The speakers will highlight and emphasize techniques for cleaning and organizing data for visualization.

After receiving orientation and training on visualization tools and applications, including Tableau and NodeXL, participants will have the opportunity to collaborate with the speakers and their peers to create their own visualizations for future use and the opportunity to begin building a collection dashboard for their institution.
