Happy fall everyone! It’s finally begun to get that crisp, autumnal feeling around here – much anticipated by yours truly, to be sure.
I’m very much looking forward to being part of two fantastic events this month, both focused on user experience & libraries. They’re both still open for registration!
- October 20: I’ll be kicking off the Library Journal/ER&L sponsored online workshop, “Crafting Exceptional Digital Experiences for the User-Centered Library” with a talk on – you guessed it – Putting Users First. (Now why does that phrase sound familiar?)
This five-week interactive workshop has an awesome lineup of speakers, including Matt Franks, Rebecca Blakiston, Emily Austin & Laurissa Wolfram-Hvass of Mailchimp, and Zach Pousman of THINK Interactive.
- October 28: I’ll be keynoting the NISO Virtual Conference, Interacting with Content: Improving the User Experience.
This all-day online event has a fantastic lineup, including the @WeaveUX editors speaking on the UX of LIS Scholarship, Kate Lawrence of EBSCO, Sophia Voychehovski on object-oriented UX, my IUK colleague Angie Thorpe, and others.
In other news, earlier this fall I gave a talk with my colleague Anne Haines as part of the IU Libraries’ own Digital Library Brown Bag series on “Content Strategy as a Model of Web Stewardship.” The recording is available via IU Scholarworks, and our slides are online at HaikuDeck:
Content Strategy as A Model of Web Stewardship – Digital Library Brown Bag/Sept 2015 – Created with Haiku Deck, presentation software that inspires
We plan to expand the content (about content) we covered into an essay, which we hope might find a home at WeaveUX next spring.
Until next time! Thanks for stopping by.
