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.

Josh Hadro
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.
