Is Your Library People-Focused?

Are you seeking to make improvements and changes to your library on a small budget? Is your library looking to renovate, relocate, rebrand, or introduce a new service/program?

“DIY Usability and User Experience: Is Your Library People Focused?”

In this DIY-style workshop, you will learn to how use people-centered design methods at your library to help you plan, coordinate, assess and evaluate your services and processes to ensure that they are cost- and time-efficient. While you may not have the staff, time, or funding to do a full-fledged library usability and user experience study; together, participants will experience how to use these methods to make small changes for a big impact. Filled with examples, case studies, and activities, participants will leave this workshop with the framework and tools for completing their own DIY usability study.

When: Thursday, April 26th from 10am-1pm
Where: METRO in NYC
How much: $35 non-member/$25 METRO member employee/$20 myMETRO member 


We presented a similar workshop as a 75-minute talk table program “DIY Usability Study: Is your Library People Focused” at the Public Library Association 2010 National Conference and here’s what one participant had to say:

“Library Journal Movers and Shakers Sandra Sajonas and Lisa Chow teamed up to run an excellent talk table on methods you can use to study your library and make sure you are focusing on users in ways that work for them.”
