Data Visualization


Presented by: SAGE, ER&L, and Library Journal

Event Date & Time: Tuesday, February 16th, 2016, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM PT

As scholars use new digital tools and resources to expand their scope of research and teaching, libraries are evolving to support them. While some of these tools and resources reside within the infrastructure of the library, others sit outside of it. This is a trend that cascades across all academic disciplines, from the humanities to the sciences, with often varying needs from disparate researchers. These different needs have led libraries to develop a wide range of service models to support curricular and research needs at their institutions. Learn about these tools, resources, and services and how they can further your interactions with researchers and help you support curricular innovation. Engage in discussions with colleagues who are helping their libraries reimagine services and evolve to support for their communities.

Session 2: “Data Visualization”

Data visualization labs have become a hot trend in academic libraries, and with good reason. Visualization helps scholars interpret, describe, and communicate complex data sets such as census data, image collections, maps, or molecular models.

Over the past few years large, high resolution displays have been appearing in academic libraries. These screens have been integrated to support a variety of research and learning through data visualization, digital scholarship, public engagement, and cross-disciplinary work with digital media.

Now that these displays have been present in libraries for some time the question is how are they being used and who is using them?   Librarians from several academic institutions will share their experiences with data visualization spaces.


Mike Nutt – Director of Visualization Services, North Carolina State University Libraries

Patrick Rashleigh – Data Visualization Coordinator, Brown University Library

Renée Reaume – Head of Digital Media and Technology Services, University of Calgary Libraries


Michael Levine-Clark – Interim Dean and Director, University of Denver Libraries
