Description

by Darlene Fichter and Jeff Wisniewski

From library catalogs to mind maps to visual search engines join us as we tour some of the best, most interesting, most useful, or just plain coolest visualization tools out there. One of the most important trends to emerge from the Web 2.0 phenomenon is the advent of visualization tools that can illuminate, reveal, and shine a bright light on otherwise complex, dense, or dare we say boring data and text. Explore how these tools offer unique ways to visualize information patterns, facilitate information discovery and navigation, and reveal hidden concepts. Find the sweet spots for these new visualization tools for libraries, including how library users responded when the library catalog went "visual" with AquaBrowser.

You’re so vain, you probably think this search engine is about you. My quick tests to find similar images turned up “null” until I tried their own logo.
