CHICAGOCore hosts the webinar “Visualizing and Assessing Library Data” on October 18, 2022, at 1 p.m. CT. Visualizing data can provide instant and effective storytelling. With library data, you can instantly explore usage stats, collection facts, and user demographics. It can also be designed for all levels in your organization, from the individual cataloger or acquisitions specialist up to the library director or higher administration. Two cataloging professionals will help attendees to explore different visualizations on real library data to see how to begin to incorporate visualizations to show impact. By the end of the webinar, attendees will be able to navigate several kinds of visualizations to assess different areas of cataloging and data, learn different chart options and how to apply them effectively, utilize best practices and ethical uses for assessing data, and generally familiarize themselves with different visualization tools and options.
