We have resumed some on-campus services, including book pickup, virtual consultations, and fulfilling scanning/digitization requests. Many library materials are available online, but our buildings remain closed until further notice.


Visualization Support

Get training, help, and consultations on data visualization—such as Tableau—for the Harvard community.

Looking to turn columns of data into a compelling story? Interested in talking through a data visualization assignment for the students in your class? Want to polish an ugly graph before submitting your paper for review? Visualization support is here to help.

Until further notice, all visualization support is virtual via Zoom. 


What can we help you with?

We’re here to help members of the Harvard community incorporate visualization techniques into their coursework, research, or teaching. We can help you at any stage of the process — from brainstorming and storyboarding to exploring your data and teaching you how to use a specific tool.

We'll help you incorporate design principles and insights on visual perception to improve your charts, infographics, and interactive web displays. Our goal is to give you what you need to create powerful visualizations that boost the impact of your work.


Need help with a project or have a more in-depth question? We offer one-on-one consultations for anyone in the Harvard community through Zoom or by email.

We offer a subset of these workshops every semester based on interest. If you’re interested in one of these workshops but see no upcoming sessions — or if you have an idea for an additional workshop topic, would like to request a different workshop time for your time zone, or have any other feedback — email us.

We can schedule additional workshop sessions on demand, and in-class workshops are available on request.
