​T​he User Experience

User experience isn’t just a feel-good design thing, it’s a measurement – one that correlates to the business of the library. At least, that’s what library stakeholders care about. We have to be able to communicate that UX isn’t about the coat of paint on the website, but that memorable user experiences have real, on-paper impact on the things library stakeholders care about: circulation, database usage, foot traffic. Making “designing great user experiences” something your library sets out to do requires someone like you to make a case for it.

​This beginner-friendly​ workshop will focus on the fundamentals of user experience design, giving you a practical vocabulary for talking about the user experience of library web services. We will investigate useful models for identifying pain points and opportunities, which plot and rate the quality of the UX and its impact on the library’s bottom line. This is the kind of basic knowledge so many organizations require to effectively work user experience design through the layers of red tape.
