Librarians as Designers - Aaron Schmidt
Sunday, March 29th from 1:00 to 4:00 pm
|Design is more than choosing pretty colors. It’s all about solving problems and even if you don’t know it, you are a designer. Schmidt will introduce the concept of User Experience (UX) thinking and illustrate how it can help improve your website, programs, services, and more — no matter you library’s type or size. After this presentation you’ll have a keener critical eye, and a framework with which you can make your library the most important place in your community.
Registration for this pre-conference program includes a copy of Schmidt's newest book:
Useful, Usable, Desirable: Applying User Experience Design to Your Library by Aaron Schmidt and Amanda Etches)
