DIY Usability Study

We presented DIY Usability Study: Is your Library People Focused as a Public Library Association (PLA) 2010 Talk Table. Participants were given a basic introduction to usability concepts and then broken into small groups and completed their own usability study using people-centered design research and analysis methods.


  • Over 25 participants received first-hand experience completing a usability study
  • Participants left the talk table with an arsenal of usability tools and resources
  • Our program was blogged about on the PLA Blog
