Visualizing the Future Symposia: A National Forum on Data Visualization in Libraries

A partnership between the University of Michigan, the University of Southern California, and Duke University, this project will gather current and aspiring specialists in data visualization to develop a literacy-based instructional and research agenda for library and information professionals. Taking cues from other projects and grants focused on general data and information literacy, the grant will fund a series of meetings, virtual conversations, and professional development opportunities to advance library-based data visualization instruction beyond hands-on, technology-based tutorials toward a nuanced, critical understanding of visualization as a research product and form of expression.
