Data visualization and information literacy

Presenter 1

What is the place for data visualization in information literacy? Data librarians are typically expert in explaining the use of specific databases and software tools to locate and analyze information, but data visualization outside of the specialized context of GIS is typically given short shrift. The Pecha Kuchka illustrates the elements of data visualization best practices that deserve to be made a part of the data librarian’s standard teaching toolkit, and also makes recommendations for which aspects of data visualization are valuable for general inclusion in information literacy goals.
