Week 7 and Data Visualization

17 Apr
We’re now in week 7 of our 8 week journey! This week we’ll be looking at some Data Visualization tools that will help both librarians and patrons understand, interpret, and share their data more effectively. ManyEyes, Visual.Ly, and Taxegdo.com are all free, online webtools that can help users to create and share both data and graphic images. We’ll also be exploring how academic libraries can use these tools to analyze information that will benefit their patrons, staff, and members of the broader community. This module has some great exercises set up for you to try out these tools, and also a fun opportunity to set up a great word cloud for your blog. We look forward to reading your reflections and experiences with these data visualization sites and seeing your word clouds!
