This four-part webinar series will provide a practical introduction to Tableau Public, a free data-visualization software that offers libraries the ability to leverage large sources of data and create dynamic data visualizations. Participants will learn to create several visualizations using library data and then effectively compile these visualizations into interactive dashboards and stories that engage target audiences and advance data-driven arguments. Take home practice activities will be provided following each training session to allow participants to develop their data visualization skills. The series will conclude with a showcase of dashboards put together by seminar participants using either local or national library data.
This free event is supported by the State Library of Ohio with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
In this first session attendees will learn to
- open Tableau and connect to a data source
- identify the components of the Tableau interface and describe their purpose
