Wandering Librarian: Darien Library

metropolitan new york library council logoAs METRO User Experience (UX) Special Interest Group (SIG) co-conveners, we organized a group tour of Darien Library and its UX department last week. A big thanks to Darien Library for the great tour and their hospitality!

Darien Library

This is our 3rd or 4th visit (we kinda lost track) to Darien Library and we’re continually impressed with what they’re doing. Of course, we may be a little biased cause we’ve got a crush on Darien. Learn more about Darien Library from Alex’s presentation (slide deck) at our February 2015 METRO UX SIG meeting.

Check out the photo slideshow of the tour.

Monthly Method Spotlight: Storyboards


When/why: A storyboard is a tool where a visual sequence of events is used to capture a user’s interactions with a product or service.

How: Think comic strip as the ultimate form of a storyboard.

Tips: There are tons of blank storyboard templates online or you can do a quick & dirty storyboard by drawing the boxes in yourself. Remember to keep it simple with as few boxes as you need to get the idea across.
