Infographics are a dynamic way to present pertenant information to library patrons. This week I chose to use the information presented by the Pew Research Center on library usage in today’s world. I used the website easel.ly to access a premade template. I chose their site as I found them more user friendly. While it took a while to learn the ins and outs of the program, it was similar to a lot of the technology I already new.
I am very excited about this technology and medium as a have to projects that I immediately want to create. I have always wanted to create an infographic linking my school’s nightly 20 minute read requirement to educational success (i.e. higher reading levels), and further more to economic success. I also want to create an info graphic on library procedures next. All in all this was a very useful lesson.
