Libraries are the local hub of knowledge. So how we can they use data and datavis to help the community engage with even more knowledge?

We gave a short presentation at the State Library of NSW about data and data visualisation for libraries, organised by RISG http://referenceandinformationservices.wetpaint.com/

Thanks Ellen! https://twitter.com/ellenforsyth for inviting us to speak.
