Part of the mission of the Health Sciences Library is to connect Health System affiliates with resources across Grounds to facilitate learning, research, and collaboration. One of those resources is the University of Virginia Alliance for Computational Science & Engineering (UVACSE). Recently, some members of the library staff took a tour of the new Visualization Lab (VizLab) in Rice Hall. The VizLab is a fascinating space, and UVACSE staff are available to assist researchers in data translation by providing instruction on state-of-the-art visualization tools and display facilities. The lab features a Viz Wall, a touch table, high-end computer graphic equipment, and video conferencing equipment. For information about the VizLab, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
