This is the second time I’ve worked with Voyant. Both times I was enamored of all the tools available in this tool, but I was also overwhelmed by the choices. The most useful aspect for me is to be able to take a large data and suddenly see all the connections. The first time I used the tools, I uploaded a CVS file (created from an Excel spreadsheet) detailing the artists’ books in the library collection. It was a fast and informative way of seeing where our collection strengths and even weaknesses were. For example, we could now very easily see that books with handmade paper was a strength of the collection. Plus, we had an easy way to share that information with colleagues.
