In this workshop, participants will examine a set of visualizations created by a team of faculty, librarians and academic specialists at Michigan State University. Using Michigan State University Library (MSUL) library data, this group can be utilized to explore questions of community and identity in comics culture. Utilizing the MSUL dataset, we will use Flourish to create visualizations that shed light on the patterns linked to comic publishing in the United States. Participants will leave the workshop with a better understanding of how to prepare data, model it in Flourish, and how to access pre-existing datasets here and elsewhere that work with Flourish.
