Fundamentals of Data Visualization

Contact: Jackie Wirz
Contact: 503.494.3443 - http://libguides.ohsu.edu/dataviz - Pacific Northwest region
Data is everywhere, but too often, its presentation is about as interesting as a wet dishrag. I believe that data can be engaging when presented with clarity and style. This talk will discuss the basic principles of good visual design. Along the way, I will present case studies on the good, the bad and the ugly in data visualization. Participants will learn the fundamental aspects of visual perception, graphical design, and information presentation. These skills can be taught to patrons and library staff alike, and will help all gain better insight into our data and information through good visual design. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but excellent visualization of data is priceless.

Embedded and Empowered: Making an Impact with Embedded Librarianship- a Face to Face Class

Contact: Courtney Mlinar
Contact: 817-781-5592 - http://www.lilrc.org/event/1519/ - All region
The role of the embedded librarian takes many forms – in higher education, community health organizations, support groups and businesses. Embedded librarianship can include team teaching a course, becoming an important part of an annual health event, integrating library resources into a course curriculum or even becoming a member of a medical research team. This 6 hour face to face course will discuss best practices and tools for embedded librarianship. We will explore how to initiate a collaborative relationship with faculty, medical teams or community organizations, and also teach you how to partner with them for better outcomes. Participants will learn how to improve or build new relationships and become an integral part of the curriculum, event, or program of study. We will also learn how to use emerging technology tools in embedded librarianship for communication and collaboration. Participants will share and brainstorm ideas to empower embedded librarianship within our organizations.
