For decades libraries have contributed a wealth of knowledge and data into Sierra. By connecting to Sierra's back-end PostgreSQL server through Tableau, a data-visualization software, librarians will have access to analyze this data in a completely new and innovative way. This presentation will demonstrate how to unlock the potential of Sierra with Tableau by connecting the two softwares, showing how to access and connect multiple Sierra tables, and provide example visualizations of collection data.
