I coordinate the way data is organized in the library's integrated library system (an ILS is roughly the library equivalent of an ERP), and am responsible for configuring and extracting that data as needed to aid executives and managers in understanding what is happening around the system.
I'm an interested novice. I have the Edward Tufte books, I'm familiar with exploratory data analysis, I've worked with Motion Chart. Most of my background, though, is with the standard Excel/Minitab charts, graphs, histograms, etc.
Hi, everybody! Part of my work for Multnomah County Library involves extracting and interpreting data from our core system, and I want to learn more about how to better see and present it.
