I just watched the recording of Dr. Michelle Chen’s recent webinar entitled “When Information Visualization Meets LIS,” a talk sponsored last week by our School’s award-winning ASIS&T student chapter. Chen, a faculty member with our School, discussed the emerging field of information visualization and the use of 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional graphic representations of data by information professionals.
As a new student in one of our School’s fully online programs, you’ll soon learn the importance of communicating visually with your peers and professors, be it through slide presentations, reports, and student-led lectures, so I highly recommend viewing the webinar for immediate inspiration. Also, down the line, you may want to consider taking Dr. Chen’s LIBR 246 Information Visualization course
In the meantime, here’s a recap of the session with link for your own personal viewing.
