Driving Library Change with User Experience Design
An Amigos Online Conference
December 8th 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM CST

Librarians are increasingly turning to User Experience (UX) design principles to gain a deeper understanding of their users, determine what their patrons need and value, and evaluate their own institutions’ abilities and limitations. UX practices which historically have been associated with website redesigns and other technology projects are now being used to improve the quality of the users’ interactions and perceptions of the library as a whole. As part of this evolution, UX design is now making its way into other areas of the library including strategic planning, library space, collections, and programming.

During this December 8th online conference, we will discover how all types of information organizations have used UX design principles to enhance and improve their patrons’ overall experiences when using the library. Over the course of this one-day online event, we will hear from a variety of UX design perspectives, experiences, and lessons learned from public, academic, and special libraries.

Each session will run 45 minutes.
