The Visualizing the Future (VTF) Symposia is an IMLS National Forum Grant-funded community of praxis focused on envisioning the future of data visualization services and instruction, made up of librarians and information professionals from institutions across the United States. This group aims to advance data visualization instruction and move beyond hands-on, technology-based tutorials toward a nuanced, critical understanding of visualization as a research product and form of expression. This presentation will explore the role of libraries in building literacy around visualization creation and consumption and will address the challenges of moving beyond simple, tool-based visualization instruction. Through a mix of presentation and activities, this session will help attendees gain confidence in their ability to support critical visualization literacy skills among library patrons.

Participants will:
  • Be able to describe how threshold concepts can be used to guide literacy instruction in libraries.
  • Be able to identify threshold concepts that make up the Data Visualization Literacy Framework.
  • Be able to evaluate visualization instruction techniques for their ability to improve learner literacy using threshold concepts.
