With the vast amount of statistics and infographics now available at the touch of a finger or click of a mouse, it is often difficult to determine which ones offer an accurate representation of a topic.

This webinar will provide an overview of data literacy and reproducibility concepts, aimed at giving attendees the knowledge needed to determine the purpose for which statistical and pictorial data is being used whether conclusions using the data are sound.

Dr. Nick Ruhs is the STEM Data and Research Librarian at Florida State University. He leads the development of data services for FSU STEM scholars and provides support related to research data management and data information literacy. He is also a subject librarian and provides research and instructional support for the Chemistry, Biological Sciences, Statistics, Computer Science, and Scientific Computing departments at FSU. He is a member of the American Library Association (ALA), the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), Research Data Access and Preservation (RDAP), and the American Chemical Society (ACS).
