Free OCLC session at ACRL 2013

Are you going to ACRL in Indianapolis? OCLC’s “Collective Insight” event series continues there with a free afternoon symposium that’s worth your time.

Collective Insight: Clear Pictures from Complex Information
Wednesday, April 10, 1:00 – 3:30 pm, J.W. Marriott Indianapolis, Rooms 201–202
Good data can help us see our world in new ways and reveal different perspectives. New tools and trends are making data visualization important; visualizing complex data can tell us new things about our work and resources—and may help us understand how libraries fit into the larger academic environment and the information ecosystem as a whole.
Please join us for the latest in OCLC’s “Collective Insight: Driven By Shared Data” series. Our keynote, Noah Iliinsky (Visualization Expert at IBM’s Center for Advanced Visualization, co-author of Designing Data Visualizations and editor/contributor to Beautiful Visualization from O’Reilly Media) will talk about the value and direction of data visualization as well as current best practices.
Then, Lorraine Haricombe, Dean of Libraries at University of Kansas, and Cathy De Rosa, OCLC Vice President for the Americas and Global Vice President of Marketing, will share results from a new OCLC study that gives us a fresh way to see how libraries are perceived through the eyes of two types of university customers: parents and alumni.
