User Experience has become an essential and prominent element of core service design in the library profession, and with that comes the need for a dedicated outlet for high quality discussion of professional concerns. Come learn more about Weave, the new peer-reviewed journal of user experience design for librarians and professionals in related fields. The talk will cover the founding philosophy behind the publication, which strives “for a balance between theoretical and practical topics.” You’ll also hear about the various kinds of submissions the journal is seeking, including peer-reviewed journal articles and more informal discussions of UX practice.
