Library Data Visualization Blog: PLS data visualizations

The Library Data Visualization Blog has been posting some wonderful visualizations of data from the FY2011 Public Library Survey, collected by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Their latest is “What States Have the Highest Children’s Circulation?”.  These are great examples of how libraries can use assessment data to show impact! They used Tableau software — and you can too! They have a free version.

    This is a great site. I noticed that the site owner, Tom Newman, provides an interactive National Public Library data tool through which people can create their own maps. http://public.tableausoftware.com/views/NationalPublicLibraryData2011/LibraryServices?:embed=y&:display_count=no
