ACRL/NY User Experience Discussion Group April 25, 2013 6:00pm-7:30pm- Grad Center, CUNY Mina Rees Library

Greetings ACRL/NY Members,

Join us on Thursday April 25 from 6:00pm-7:30pm at the CUNY Grad Center, Mina Rees Library, Lower level conference room for a lively discussion on Usability Testing and other Assessment measures.

Libraries are designed to serve the educational needs of our users but very often we don’t consult our users enough.

When it comes to our web site, physical space, our furniture, the orientation of our stacks, and our collection, we should be conducting more user testing to understand their needs.

How do we really know how effective our signs, web sites, or brochures are?

Usability testing is not limited to web sites. It can relate to study space design, location of the printers and photocopy machines, and even our entrance and exit.

How do you assess your users?

Let’s talk about it!

Join us on Thursday April 25th, 2013 from 6:00pm-7:30pm at the CUNY Grad Center’s Mina Rees Library, Lower Level conference room, room C196.05 (Concourse Level, Mina Rees Library)

Coffee and refreshments will be served.
