Are you more likely to read a table of data, or engage with a pictorial representation of the same information? Using words and visuals together has been proven to increase understanding and interest. This presentation will describe our recent undertaking to engage our stakeholders, especially faculty, in the assessment, analysis, and development of our library collections. Using graphs and other visual representations, we are effectively presenting our current state, trends, and user behavior. These ongoing conversations are engaging faculty and leading to a deeper understanding of our collections and how they support the curriculum at our institution.
