We are excited to share our call for participants for Visualizing the
Future, an IMLS National Forum Grant to develop a literacy-based
instructional and research agenda for library and information professionals
with the aim to create a community of praxis focused on data visualization.
This grant aims to create a diverse community that will advance data
visualization instruction and use beyond hands-on, technology-based
tutorials toward a nuanced, critical understanding of visualization as a
research product and form of expression.
As part of this grant we are seeking applications for a cohort of fellows
to: carry out research related to visualization, attend two in-person
meetings over the next two years, and help in the development and
dissemination of a framework for data visualization support in libraries
and related institutions.
