Big Data at the Desk: Data visualization and research for the rest of us!

The RUSA MARS Hot Topics in Electronic Reference Discussion Group and LLAMA MAES presents:

 Big Data at the Desk: Data visualization and research for the rest of us!

 Librarians loved the Information Age, but the MLS didn’t necessarily prepare us to crunch numbers, draw conclusions, and create infographics. The era of “Big Data” has arrived!

Information literacy incorporates data literacy and even generalist librarians need to be able to handle data-driven reference questions.

Panelists David Schwieder, Jen Darragh, and Laura Francabandera will help you understand data sets, teach tips for finding data during a reference interaction, and highlight a few excellent tools for creating data visualizations. Join us for these presentations (and some lively discussion!) on Sunday, June 30th

from 4:30 until 5:30 PM in McCormick Place Convention Center room N127.
