Information visualization is considered one of the prime emerging technologies for large-scale data analysis and is an important topic for information professionals to understand. It deals with analyzing, displaying, communicating and interpreting massive amounts of abstract data effectively and efficiently via visual representations. In this webinar, Dr. Chen will present and discuss how information visualization can be used to help libraries and librarians utilize the abundant data resources (to which they now have more and more access) to provide better patron services through enhanced collection analysis, resource allocation, and user engagement.
