Data visualization with Excel: A hands-on internship from the University of Minnesota Health Sciences Library

Through the Data visualization with Excel internship, the University of Minnesota Health Sciences Library (HSL) will host a Data Visualization Intern to further the work of NNLM RD3: Resources for Data-Driven Discovery. In alignment with the National Library of Medicine’s three strategic goals for 2017-2027, the Data Visualization Internship will create a robust training experience as one step toward the goal of cultivating a diverse data science workforce, enhancing information delivery, and promoting data literacy. Through the experience, the Data Visualization Intern will learn and apply a broad set of skills related to data visualization with Excel for hands-on application via teaching, consulting, and learning object creation. The internship experience will be guided by the MLA data services competencies and related performance indicators. Learning objects created as part of the internship will extend or adapt existing materials to broaden the current knowledge base, and will be developed as open educational resources for broad use and repurposing within the Network of the National Library of Medicine Greater Midwest Region and beyond.
