Abstract: Slides from a webinar presented May 6, 2020 for SirsiDynix's Library Professional OnDemand Webinar Series. Have you struggled with interpreting data? Do you want to learn more in-depth skills on what data visualization can do for your library? Librarians deal with data every day. Patron data, cataloging data, events, etc; all of this data is important and helps your library know where and how improvements can be made. Reading and representing that data can be a challenge for anyone who isn’t familiar with data visualization. Tune into this webinar with Jo Klein, GIS and Data Visualization Librarian at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, as they dive into an online workshop that will critically engage the idea of "cold, hard data". Come explore how to take data deeper to make strong and ethically responsible visualizations.
