    Abstract:
    Poster presentation at Music Library Association Annual Meeting, February 22, 2019. To a librarian, infographics seem like the perfect tool to disseminate information. Infographics are particularly effective at cutting through the clutter to communicate with audiences, draw the attention of students, and make concepts more digestible in a quick and straightforward way. But do students think so? More importantly, is it worth the time to create infographics if students don’t find them accessible? A survey will be distributed to music students at DePauw University (Greencastle, IN) in order to better understand how undergraduate students view infographics embedded in LibGuides. “Do infographics break up the text?” and “Is the information easier to find?” are examples of questions that will be presented. In this poster session, I will present the study results and lead an open discussion about my findings.
