|Library Talks: Numbers Tell Your Story|
Event Type: Continuing Education|
Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Time: 4:00 PM
Are you drowning in data but missing meaning? You have lots of numbers—circulation statistics, computer usage tallies, and you think Excel is on your computer, but what do you do with all of it? This class will show you how to use technology to transform your data into meaningful information that shows the impact of your library. Learn how to display numbers in a robust and compelling style in order to connect organizations, boards, and communities to your library’s story. Practice using Microsoft Excel and Word as well as infographic software to create dynamic reports that express your library’s value.
As an active participant, you will:
• Explore ways to transform standard reports and statistics into documents that emphasize your library’s strengths
• Practice using Excel to highlight data and create charts
• Learn how to use free software to create infographics to showcase statistics
Join our SCKLS team of presenters, Sharon Barnes, Technology Consultant; Robyn Bravi, Technology Consultant; and Lisa Sharbaugh, Automation and Technology Services Coordinator, for this hands-on training designed to help you translate numbers into relevant communication. There will be a two hour break for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. during which participants may leave and eat lunch, or bring their own lunch and eat in the SCKLS large meeting room.
If you are a new Excel user, consider joining Tamia Taylor-Bader on Tuesday, November 13th for the “Library Talks: Excel Basics—Building Skills for Beginners” session to increase your comfort level with spreadsheets prior to the “Numbers Tell Your Story” session.
