Collection Close-up: Telling the Story with Data
"Data doesn't speak for itself; it needs a storyteller...When you use your data to provide timely and critical guidance to decision-makers, you change organizational outcomes." ~Nancy Duarte
Most people have heard the terms “Big Data” and “Data Management”, but not everyone has studied programming languages such as Python, R, C++, or Java to create or extract data. The good news is that you don’t have to! Anyone can learn how to explore, interpret, and explain data. Facts and numbers can get lost over time, but an engaging story is remembered.
Check out some of the resources that the library has to help you transform numbers into narratives, get value from data, create dynamic visuals, and make better decisions.
