Why Use Infographics?

You have probably noticed the frequent use of data visualisations or infographics in reports, presentations, magazines, on tv, and certainly in online media. But have you thought about using them in your library?

An infographic is a visual representation of data. It is about making important data information available in colourful, easy-to-read illustrations. Many of us, including students, find it easier to visualise information, data, or knowledge with a graphic present.

Stephen Abram suggests representing data as an infographic, as he has illustrated here, improves the understanding of data concepts or topics. With a colourful and engaging design, positive learning outcomes are achieved.
