How can I access sessions?

Links have been posted to the conference's schedule page, where you'll find an abridged schedule at the top, followed by a link to a document with extended session descriptions. We ask that you not sign into a room until 15 minutes prior to a session.

What can I do between now and the conference?

Here are some blogs we really enjoy about data and statistics:

  • FiveThirtyEight.com - from forecasting election results to figuring out which percentage of the ESPN OJ Simpson documentary series contained archival footage, this is a great source for thoughtful analysis and great visualizations. Led by Nate Silver.

  • Flowing Data - A blog on data visualization by Nathan Yau, whose book Data Points is one of our team's favorites. Lots of imaginative examples of visualizing anything from America's consumption of various foodstuffs to predictions of when you will, ummm, die. (Note: dying of boredom from our upcoming webinars is not an option.)

We look forward to seeing you soon! If you have any questions in the meantime, please email us at contact.data.literacy@umich.edu.

This conference is free and organized by the University of Michigan School of Information and the University of Michigan Library with support from the University of Michigan School of Education. The conference is made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services RE-00-15-0113-15.
