Putting the User First

Putting The User FirstMy agent husband wants me to be sure and tell you about my latest book, Putting the User First: 30 Strategies for Transforming Library Services:

User experience is everywhere. From your library s website to the signage by the elevators, everything contributes to the overall user experience of our patrons. Just one simple idea can transform your library: put the user first. But as you likely already know, just because something’s simple doesn’t mean it’s easy. How best to identify, implement, and evaluate user-driven changes in order to improve physical and virtual services? The good news is that even small changes can make big headway. Putting the User First:30 Strategies for Transforming Library Services will give you 30 hands-on strategies and practical suggestions to enable you to begin transforming your library, library services, and even your personal practice to be more responsive, effective and user-centered today.
