Abstract: In this paper, we present a web-based tool for domain-specific data visualization. The tool is called “Web-VizLib” and is a simple webplatform visualization that can help librarians better-understand the usages of the books in the library. The tool provides book data visualizations, including category-specific visualization as well as location-specific visualization. The visualization tool is designed to follow information visualization guidelines that are important for describing information via graphical representations. A user-study was performed to evaluate the tool and its results showed that the tool is useful and promising.
