Whether you are a newly-minted librarian or a senior administrator, visual communication is an essential part of your work. Happily, you don't have to be a graphic designer to create powerful data graphics. Learn or refresh your knowledge about basic design concepts, some simple techniques, and how to avoid common pitfalls, and soon you'll be communicating your important data more powerfully and prolifically.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will learn:

  • The difference between exploratory and expository data visualization
  • Design concepts for the non-designer, and how they apply to data graphics
  • How to create simple, focused charts and tables that communicate meaning and inspire action

Who Should Attend

Librarians of every type and career stage who need to communicate with data.
