Data Visualization #medlibs chat

Many libraries have begun to provide support for data visualization, which can be a powerful way to convey the stories that data can tell and elucidate patterns that might not otherwise be evident. As information professionals, librarians have many skills that make them excellent partners for students, faculty, researchers, and others interested in learning how to create visualizations that demonstrate their data in coherent and visually appealing ways. In fact, a recent Medical Library Association (MLA) webinar focused on data visualization for librarians (check out the tweets from this session at #mladataviz).
Join the #medlibs chat on Twitter on Thursday, November 5 at 9 pm Eastern/6 pm Pacific to share your ideas, thoughts, and questions on data visualization. We’ll talk about tools for creating various types of visualizations, share examples of cool visualizations, and discuss how libraries can get involved in data visualization. Never been to a Twitter chat before? Check out this overview and come on in - all are welcome including first timers, lurkers, students and others interested in the topic and the field.
