HS/HSL Workshop: Introduction to Data Visualization with Tableau

The Health Sciences and Human Services Library (HS/HSL) is offering a free workshop on Tableau, a business analytics tool for creating a wide variety of interactive data visualizations, on Wednesday, March 7. The workshop will run from noon to 1 p.m. in Classroom LL05.

The Tableau software is available as a free version and a more robust full-scale version. Tableau can be used to create an extensive variety of interactive visualizations that allow users to better explore temporal, spatial, topical, and network data. The drag-and-drop interface makes it easy to explore data without needing advanced programming skills. Dashboards allow users to combine multiple views of their data into one analytics tool.

At the end of this session, you’ll be able to:

  • Connect Excel, Access, TXT, or CSV files to Tableau.
  • Create simple visualizations and a dashboard utilizing Tableau.
  • Embed visualizations into websites or export to a PDF or image file.

The instructor is Tony Nguyen, MLIS, and attendance is limited to 25 people. Register here.
