User Experience Design for Academic Libraries: Project reflections, methods, and models with the Pratt / NYU Libraries UX Practicum


Juliana Culbert, Houda El Mimouni, Allison Hall, Carolyn Li-Madeo, Samantha Raddatz, Tal Rozen, & April Siqueiros, Pratt Institute, and Nadaleen Templeman-Kluit, Head of User Experience at NYU Libraries & Practicum Lead

Throughout the Spring 2014 semester, six students concentrating in UX (user experience) from Pratt Institute’s School of Library Information Science have been participating in a UX practicum at NYU’s Bobst Library.

At this event, the students will discuss their work applying UX methods and models to a number of interfaces and services, including LibGuides, Web Scale Discovery Tool Integration, Library Privileges, and Information Architecture of the Libraries’ website. Describing methods such as formal and guerrilla user testing, card sorts, walkabout, and cognitive walkthroughs, the speakers will outline their processes and provide take-aways, methods, and models you can implement in your library.
