As libraries and academic institutions evolve into “data-driven” organizations, they are looking for meaningful ways in which to convey their data to funding and regulatory agencies, licensing and accreditation boards, and institutional students, faculty and staff. This data-driven culture is being integrated into all facets of library operations, and data visualization services is emerging as a distinct library research and service development area.
