It's back to school time! Join us for this back-to-school-themed meeting where Craig M. MacDonald from Pratt will cover UX basics and fundamentals and UX librarianship and Junior Tidal from CUNY New York City College of Technology will talk about his new book, Usability and the Mobile Web. There will be opportunities to network with colleagues, share UX tips, and get feedback on UX projects.
User Experience for Librarians: The Basics and Beyond
Craig MacDonald, Pratt Institute School of Information and Library Science
This talk will introduce some fundamental principles of UX, present findings from ongoing research into UX Librarianship, and describe how Pratt SILS is preparing information professionals to succeed in UX roles.
In Your Hands and On the Phone: Usability and the Mobile Library Website
Junior Tidal, New York City College of Technology
To accommodate more users connecting to information resources through their smartphones and tablet computers, libraries have been developing optimized websites and applications. Developing mobile friendly websites is only one part of the solution, as it’s just as important for librarians to learn about the users they are serving.
This presentation is an overview of the book, Usability and the Mobile Web, published by ALA TechSource. Topics to be discussed include usability testing, developing websites for the mobile web, and the difference between testing desktops and mobile devices.
We hope to see you there!
Lisa Chow & Sandra Sajonas, UX SIG Conveners
