Collection Close-up: Visualizing Data and Information

by Marilee Tuite

The library has acquired a few books about visualizing data and information, listed under the heading Visual Communication. These resources can assist with clearly communicating numbers in graphs, tables, or other visualizations:

  • Now You See It: Simple Visualization Techniques for Quantitative Analysis
  • Show Me the Numbers: Designing Tables and Graphs to Enlighten

The book Information Dashboard Design focuses on displaying key data arranged in a single screen, such as a smartphone.

If you would like to borrow one of these books or ask a question, please contact the library by phone at 651-366-3791, by e-mail at library.dot@state.mn.us, by request form at Ask a Librarian, or in person (8:00 am – 4:30 pm, Monday – Friday).
