Information Visualization Research

A guide to resources for the Masters of Information Visualization program at MICA.

About This Guide

Hi there! Welcome to the Information Visualization Research guide. This guide is designed to help you get started with information visualization research, including where to go for datasets. This guide was designed by Jenny Ferretti and is currently maintained by Siân Evans. Please feel free to reach out to the liaison librarian Siân for any questions. Below is a great example of a visualization by the Museum of Modern Art: One-Way Ticket: Jacob Lawrence's Migration Series, Visualization the Great Migration.

Find More with WorldCat.org

WorldCat.org is the world's largest network of library content and services. WorldCat.org lets you search many libraries at once for an item and then locate it in a library nearby. Find books, music, videos, audiobooks, research articles and more.

If you find materials held at another library, Decker Library could potentially request the item be given to us through interlibrary loan. The interlibrary loan service is done online, with most materials available in 1-2 weeks.

Find Articles with Google Scholar

Google Scholar

About Google Scholar

Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites.
