Session description

This session will cover identifying and using open data to create visualisations that can then be used to inform decisions, give deeper insights or present data as art. It will also highlight and advocate for libraries’ role in releasing open data as custodians of citizens’ data and place it within the context of librarians as information professionals. 

What you will get from this session?

• The session is aimed at attendees who may be new to the concept of open data and to creating visualisations.

• The goal is to give attendees an idea of how quickly and easily visualisations can be created without needing coding or programming skills.

• By the end attendees will have a better understanding of what open data is, how it applies to libraries and librarians, and its uses in a library context.

What will happen?

• The session with start with an introduction to the concept of open data and data visualization.

• Participants will be given links to open data sources and free to use or open source resources with which they can create visualisations of the data; there will be a focus on using open data provided by libraries.

Remember: Bring your laptop to this session!
