Essentials of Usability Design for library research guides

Date(s) - 11/06/2019
10:00 am - 11:00 am




Web design, in the form of creating online research guides, has become a big part of many librarians’ jobs, but we’re rarely taught how to do it well. Most of us learn the nuts and bolts of how to make guides, without learning the principles of how to make them usable — the simple techniques of visual and textual design that can help us create guides that users will understand more easily, and stick around to use.

Learning outcomes:

  • How usability design affects library users’ experience
  • What librarians don’t know — but need to — about web usability
  • Easy to use principles of usability that can immediately improve your research guides
  • Free resources to share with your librarians and guide authors to better inform your institutional style plans
