Looking to transform your library and your services to be more responsive, effective and user-centered? Interested in revitalizing your own practice? Want to have more fun at work? Librarians transitioning into user experience (UX) work as well as those wishing to strategically integrate UX thinking into library operations will benefit from this interactive workshop. This session will define UX design within the context of librarianship to establish groundwork for UX-based thinking and decision-making in professional practice. Attendees will be presented with concrete strategies for identifying, implementing, and evaluating user-driven changes to improve physical and virtual services. At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will take away a UX roadmap customized to their own institutional use case.
