Skills in data visualization are increasingly crucial for librarians and information professionals who work in libraries.  Data and information visualization involves expressing information to tell meaningful stories with datasets.  It is critical for libraries to communicate their value to their stakeholders, and data visualization tools and technologies can enable libraries to tell the story of their value in a way that is dynamic, engaging, and easy for viewers to understand.  Libraries can also utilize data visualization technologies to assist researchers in interpreting public open data sets.
