Visualize Your Data Using Excel
Visualize Your Data Using Excel

Visualizing data can provide insight into your research or help you communicate results more effectively.  There are many software packages that can help you visualize data including Excel. 

The Research Medical Library has selected some courses where you can learn about working with charts and graphs and creating data-driven presentations using Excel.  If you are new to Excel, there is the Excel 2013 Essential Training course.  For expert users, you may want to take the Excel Statistics Essential Training or the Learning Excel Cluster Analysis. 

All of these courses are available from LinkedIn Learning. MD Anderson staff can request a LinkedIn Learning account at
New Library Search Coming Soon

The library is implementing a new search and linking tool called Search the Library. This new tool offers one easy-to-use search box for discovering the entire library collection. Facets and filters are provided for quickly refining your search to those results most relevant to you.

Behind the scenes, Primo will seamlessly link MD Anderson staff to 11,000+ journals, and 100,000+ eBooks subscribed to by the Research Medical Library. Look for the red and gray buttons in PubMed, Embase, CINAHL, and other databases to get to the full-text article.

The new tool will be launched in December. The library will be making changes and improvements along the way. Email with questions.
