B05. Applying Data Visualization into Library Decision Making
As more and more library data is collected and analyzed, effective data visualization is an important tool in the decision making process. It allows decision makers to quickly examine large amounts of data, expose trends and issues efficiently, exchange ideas with key players, and influence the decisions that will ultimately lead to success. Our presentation will use one of the most popular free data visualization applications, Tableau Public, to present and analyze our library data, and to show the potentials of the general method and the specific tool in data visualization.
