You don’t have to be a graphic designer to present your library statistics in a way that effectively communicates value. In this session, you’ll learn quick and easy tips for visually displaying your statistics so that they tell a meaningful story about your library, whether your data visualization aspirations consist of adding a few Excel charts to a board report, or designing a complex infographic for your website.

After participating in this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Explain why visual presentation of data increases viewer comprehension.
  • Apply design principles to your visual presentations of data to increase their effectiveness.
  • Create a basic infographic that tells a meaningful story about your library.
