A103: Students & Faculty Research Differently

1:15 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Deirdre Costello, Director, UX Research, EBSCO Information Services

Faculty have immense influence over the way students conduct research: They assign it, recommend resources, and are the gatekeepers of libraries’ access to the classroom. They’re also researchers in their own right, and both libraries and vendors work to understand how they can support advanced, subject-specific faculty research workflows as well as those of novice undergraduates. Hear the results of EBSCO’s User Research team, who spent the fall conducting a large-scale, ethnographic project on the way faculty conduct research and use library resources. Results are compared to earlier findings about students’ research habits.

Jeff Wisniewski, Web Services Librarian, University of Pittsburgh

Think your UX toolbox is full already? Make room for customer/ library user journey mapping. Find out what this method is all about and why it’s so effective in bringing together administrators, stakeholders, and team members to determine priority actions. Customer journey maps show all the touchpoints that a user interacts with to meet a particular need. By mapping the same need by different user segments, you create a compelling visual representation of the issues that need to be addressed. Journey mapping can also be used over time to illustrate what progress is being made toward improving services. Learn how to create a customer journey map that can make a difference in your community.

B102: UX Research Leads to Richer Library Websites

11:15 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Iain Lowe, Director of Product, BiblioCommons Inc.
Stephanie Rosso, Principal Web Developer, Hennepin County Library
Amy Luedtke, Senior Librarian, Information Programs and Services, Hennepin County Library
Nathan Carlson, Librarian, Metropolitan State University

UX research helps fuel the design of new services for tomorrow’s library by offering insights into the “wants” and “needs” of the library’s users and non-users. It also reveals “how” and “why” people use your website. The first presentation shares research results that have helped spark new approaches and design decisions as well as promote deeper engagement and participation by users on the website. Learn how content is introduced to patrons at appropriate moments in their website visit so that it encourages deeper exploration of the library’s collections and services. Find out how they encourage visitors to participate online, leading to a richer experience for everyone. When Metropolitan State University was redesigning its website, some unexpected user behaviors were uncovered which led the team to broaden their vision of the library web experience to include spaces such as a newly developed Google Business Page and a Wikipedia entry. The team also employed some new content and approaches based on their findings to ensure visitors could use the library and find the homepage in the ways that worked best for them.

Lunch Break

12:00 p.m. - 1:15 p.m.

B103: Website Redesign: Techniques & Tools

1:15 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Dana Haugh, Web Services Librarian, Stony Brook University
Roy Degler, Associate Professor, Digital Library Services, Digital Resources and Discovery Services, Oklahoma State University
Emily R Mitchell, Webmaster Librarian, SUNY Oswego

Join three web experts to learn about tips, tools, and techniques for taking the pain out of website redesigns. Haugh provides advice on the visual design of your next site and shows some examples of library web redesigns. Degler takes a look at why many libraries are using popular, free, CSS-based frameworks such as Bootstrap; explains how the grid layout works; and shows how the built-in responsive design layouts can deliver a site that works on desktop, smartphones, and tablets. Often the biggest challenge in redesign isn’t the visual design, content management system or coding. It’s the people and politics. Everyone thinks they know what the library website should look like, but no two people—let alone groups—can ever agree. How do you move ahead with a library redesign when you’re facing conflicting demands from the administration, co-workers, users, and stakeholders? Mitchell tackles this challenge head on and points out the weapons that we have at hand—from data to documentation; and discusses how to wield those weapons effectively to win (almost) any fight in order to build a great website. Grab lots of insights and ideas from this experienced panel.

B104: Maximizing New Tools

2:15 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Sarah Arnold, Instructional Technology Librarian, University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill

UNC Libraries’ User Experience department migrated the library’s 1,200-plus databases from a 15-year old, custom- developed, in-house system to the LibGuides A–Z Database List. Arnold shares key usability study findings of the database listings before and after the migration, lessons learned during the migration, and best practices for managing a project of this size with multiple stakeholders across the library’s departments. Find out whether or not your website should take users directly to an e-resource when they click on the link to it or show them an intermediary database page providing log in and other user information.

B105: Active Tutorials With “Guide on the Side”

3:15 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Katie Bertel, Outreach & Engagement Librarian, SUNY Buffalo State
Trevor Riley, Engineering & Emerging Technologies Librarian, New York State College of Ceramics, Alfred University

Providing help to users at the point of need is critical to easing user frustration and stress, but we can’t be everywhere at once. That’s why the University at Arizona created Guide on the Side (GotS), an easy-to-use online, interactive tutorial application that lives in the user’s web browser. GotS encourages active learning and can also provide support for assessment. Bertel and Riley provide an overview of the Guide on the Side pilot project at SUNY and how it’s being used by content creators and users. Insights gained moving to this new active learning approach are shared along with best practices for use and implementation.

In 2012, Contra Costa County Library won the IMLS Medal of Honor for its Discover and Go culture pass program, which is powered by Quipu Group’s service. In 2016, southern and northern California library systems became united in being able to offer passes to museums, parks, aquariums and many other cultural institutions through their shared Discover & Go service. The partnerships being built through this program are quite powerful. ePASS is currently implemented in close to 50 libraries, including San Francisco Public Library and Multnomah County Library. MacKinnon, part of the Discover & Go development team, discusses the goals and implementation of ePASS and how it continues to create relationships across California libraries and cultural institutions. After seeing the power of cooperation with ePASS, Quipu Group launched its newest collaborative service, Patron Incident Tracking System (PITS) in 2015. PITS allows libraries to cooperate with other county/city/governmental agencies on the reporting of difficult and problematic patrons who repeatedly challenge these institutions and the safety of their other patrons and staff. PITS is currently in use in five large urban library districts. Hear how the Quipu Group developed PITS and ePASS by working closely with library agencies with application needs not currently met through traditional delivery systems.

2:15 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Dr. Janie Pickett, Head Librarian, Eureka High School, Eureka, Mo.
Anna Gray, Social Studies Teacher, Eureka High School, Eureka, Mo.

recent collaborative effort between a high school social studies teacher and a school librarian transformed a “same-old” unit on social movements in the 20th century into a dynamic study of effective social activism—and how students can become effective activists. Using both primary and secondary resources, students learned to analyze social issues, then to identify the type of activism that proved effective for those issues. Next, students selected social situations important to them, analyzed the changes they sought to effect, and determined a means of activism to effect that change in practical—and often surprising—ways. The project’s design and implementation is straightforward and replicable. This session provides concrete steps to follow, specific patterns for locating learning resources, and reproducible forms that educators can carry back to their own campuses.
