CFP: IOLUG Spring 2016 Conference – DIY UX: Innovate. Create. Design (Indiana Online Users Group Spring Meeting - May 2016)

IOLUG Spring 2016 Conference – DIY UX: Innovate. Create. Design.

Friday, May 20th, 2016

Indiana Wesleyan University North Campus
3777 Priority Way, Indianapolis, IN  46240

The IOLUG Program Committee invites proposals around the theme of
improving user experience. What strategies and/or tools do you use to make
library resources, webpages, spaces, marketing materials, etc. more
user-friendly? What has proven successful for your organization? What
problems surrounding user experience have you encountered, and what
solutions have you devised? What best practices or recent research can you
share about user experience?

We encourage presentations that are practical, hands-on, and include
take-awayable tools, techniques, and/or strategies that librarians can
implement to improve their resources and services for students, patrons,
faculty, etc.
•Analytics (perhaps on a shoestring budget?)
•COUNTER/SUSHI improvements
•Branding and marketing
•Using data to make decisions in online and/or physical libraries
•Human-centered design
•Improving digital services and resources
•Exploring/seeking feedback on user experiences
•Attitudinal and behavioral user research – ethnographic studies
•Observation and storytelling – participant observation, usability
•Small scale UX projects
•Visual ethnography – photo studies, cognitive mapping, etc.
•Needs assessments

Please specify in your proposal whether users will be expected to bring
their own devices, or if you will need the use of a computer lab.

Deadline is Friday, March 11th!!
