WEBINAR Nov. 16 | Elevate the status of your library with data visualizations and multimedia messaging

Oct 30, 2017

Speakers for Library Connect webinar on library reporting: Todd Bruns, Dudee Chiang, Jean P. Shipman

How are librarians harnessing the power of visuals?


In this webinar, three librarians with very different perspectives — collection development, institutional repository, library leadership — will address a common theme. How to enrich their reports and presentations to key library stakeholders with multimedia and data visualizations.


Get ideas on how to give library users a platform to tell their stories about the library and how to deliver that message to university administration. Learn more about tools that can help you gain insight into and share information about your institution's research activities and performance. And learn more about using these tools to begin a broader conversation about library services and impact.
