Show Me the Numbers: Storytelling with Data and Visualizations

Thursday, October 12, 2017
University of Maryland, College Park

A one-day conference presented by:

The Maryland Chapter of the Special Libraries Association and the University of Maryland Libraries

We live in an age of Big Data. If we are going to understand our complex world, one powerful way is to graph it. Scholarly and consumer content is made more easily available by packaging it in graphs, infographics, and other visualizations. Show Me the Numbers: Storytelling with Data and Visualizations will bring together librarians and information professionals, spanning markets and disciplines, who will share their insights, experiences, and best practices.

Program presentations include:

Opening Keynote: From numbers to words to visuals: Storytelling your research, Ya-Ling Lu, Informationist, National Institutes of Health Library.

A Tale of Two Repositories: How Data Sources Affect Data Narratives, David Durden, Data Services Librarian for Digital Programs and Initiatives and Joseph Koivisto, Systems Librarian with the Consortial Library Applications Support Team at the University of Maryland, College Park.

Reading Between the Lines: A Bibliometric Approach to ILL Data at the Goddard Space Flight Center, Brynne Norton, Information Services Team Lead at the NASA Goddard Library (contracted by the Cadence Group).

Closing Keynote: Show Me a Story: Data Storytelling Using Familiar Tools, Sally Gore, Medical School Research Evaluation Analyst,  Center for Clinical & Translational Science, University of Massachusetts Medical Center.

An Industry Panel discussion on trends and innovations and an Industry Showcase round out the program.  And a networking reception ends the day!

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and hosts the Conference is being provided at no cost to attendees!
