Weave Journal of User Experience: Founding a New Open Access Journal of Library UX Practice
Josh Hadro

User Experience has become an essential and prominent element of core service design in the library profession, and with that comes the need for a dedicated outlet for high quality discussion of professional concerns. Come learn more about Weave, the new peer-reviewed journal of user experience design for librarians and professionals in related fields. The talk will cover the founding philosophy behind the publication, which strives “for a balance between theoretical and practical topics.” You’ll also hear about the various kinds of submissions the journal is seeking, including peer-reviewed journal articles and more informal discussions of UX practice.
