Visualization of Data Analysis: A New Way to Look at Content
SLA Rio Grande Chapter's March 28th Virtual Lunch from 12-1 pm (webinar defaults to EST and a 15 minute early window has been applied).
"As librarians we normally look at data in lists, citations, and other text based presentations. Increasingly however this data can be analyzed, manipulated and presented as visual displays. Maps of science, places and spaces, increased amounts storage and computing power have made working with digital assets possible. Presenting the data in new and visual ways allow us to see trends, changes in research directions, coverage, demographic trends, data overlap and the white spaces where data does not exist on a topic - knowledge gaps are exposed. This talk will cover how the data is prepare and options for visual display content to leverage your understanding of your own and other data quickly and visually."
