Many thanks to the attendees of the first organizational meeting of the ACRL/NY User Experience Discussion Group, held at Mercy College in Manhattan.
With 14 participants, conversation was lively and productive. Some of the highlights of the meeting were spirited conversations about how to get feedback from our students through surveys and other research, interacting with institutional research boards, figuring out how to ask the right questions about our students’ experience of the library, and interest in learning more about the user experience field. Meeting minutes are now posted publicly on our new Minutes page.
It was decided that we would like to start a Facebook group. Future plans include a Twitter feed and perhaps a presence on LinkedIn. The next meeting of the UXDG will be held in early December; check back soon for specific date and location.
