Show Me a Story: Data Storytelling Using Familiar Tools

Virtual Program

Data is almost always collected and analyzed for the purpose of telling a story. Charts, tables, and other graphics are the go-to tools for presenting stories in a clear and efficient manner. Unfortunately, relying upon these default practices of data presentation often results in a story being told unclearly or without meaning. This session will demonstrate best practices for designing charts and other visuals that enhance one's ability to clearly and effectively present the story behind the data using tools and technologies that most librarians already have. It will also highlight how this skillset expands the role(s) of librarians into the realm of research evaluation. The speaker is a research librarian and evaluation analyst with more 12 years of experience in an academic health sciences library and research center.

Presented by: Sally Gore, research evaluation analyst, University of Massachusetts Medical School
