20+ Tools to Create Your Own Infographics

20+ Tools to Create Your Own Infographics | Curriculum resource reviews | Scoop.it

A picture is worth a thousand words – based on this, infographics would carry hundreds of thousands of words, yet if you let a reader choose between a full-length 1000-word article and an infographic that needs a few scroll-downs, they’d probably prefer absorbing information straight from the infographic.

 

What’s not to like? Colored charts and illustrations deliver connections better than tables and figures and as users spend time looking back and forth the full infographic, they stay on the site longer. Plus, readers who like what they see are more likely to share visual guides more than articles.

Karen Bonanno's insight:

With 2013 being the year of statistics, infographics will be an essential tool.

Might be a great way to visually show the use that is made of the library space &/or personnel!  Choose the tool that suits you.
