During this hour, you will have a chance to take a break, network, and/or join a discussion about creating an online usability clearinghouse of library user testing.

Andrew Darby, Head of Web & Application Development at the University of Miami Libraries, will lead a brainstorming session and discussion on the creation of an online usability clearinghouse for libraries. A lot of library website UX blocks are practically universal (search boxes, catalogs, news carousels, terminology, etc.), and yet we separately test them over and over.  A clearinghouse site would allow one to search thematically (or geographically) and also make the data available for meta analysis.  Andrew will help us start the conversation to determine feasibility and possible next steps.
