Adventures in data visualization: Using Tableau to show the value of resource sharing

Feedback form is now closed.
I propose to present my experience with an ongoing data visualization project, in which I use Tableau to create visualizations based on resource sharing data. Data visualization can be an impactful way to show the value of resource sharing work to administrators and the public. _x000D_
In this session, I intend give a very brief overview of useful concepts and the software used (Tableau), discuss project planning and issues I encountered, and show my final visualizations. My visualizations will include traditional metrics, such as statistics on fill rates and turnaround times, but also other ways we can show the value of our work (for example, by visually showing how resource sharing work connects and helps other areas of the library, or mapping where borrowed material originates). _x000D_
By sharing my own experience in which I started from scratch, I hope to encourage others who are curious about using data visualization to show the value of their work.
