Presentations

    Exploring and presenting library data with Tableau

This hands-on workshop will provide a practical introduction to Tableau, a popular platform for data visualization. Using real library datasets participants will learn how to prepare their data for visualization, to navigate the Tableau interface, and to create reports that make their data more accessible. The workshop will briefly address principles of good data presentation, but emphasis will be on learning to use Tableau software through guided practice. No previous experience with Tableau or data visualization is required.

Important: Participants should to bring their own laptops with Tableau Public installed (free from https://public.tableau.com/s/download).

Jeremy Buhler is the assessment librarian at the University of British Columbia and uses Tableau extensively to improve access to data that informs library decisions. He partners with colleagues to help bring about UBC Library’s assessment vision, a magic place where “existing data is accessible, presented with clarity, and used in creative new ways, […] and university administrators are confident that library decisions are based on the best available evidence.”

In-Person Journal Club led by Chris Vriesema-Magnuson
