Library UX Chicago held our annual year-end event on Friday, December 15 from 1pm-4pm at DePaul University's Richardson Library. This year we experimented with a slightly new format for the event; in addition to our annual lightning talks, we set aside time to workshop project ideas.
Library UX Chicago: Year Three, Elizabeth Edwards
As in previous years, we held lightning talks so people could share their work or present on a topic related to user experience, assessment, or design in libraries.
Testing Microcopy, Emma Boettcher, University of Chicago
Display of Archival Collections in EXPLORE Chicago Collections, Kate Flynn, University of Illinois-Chicago
Deck the Halls: Getting Our Message into Students' Residential Life, Janet Olson, Northwestern University

Service Design: A Team Approach to Continuous Improvement, Kimberly Shotick and Katie Ediger, Illinois Institute of Technology
Railslibraries info Redesign: Post-go-live User Research and Tweaks, Brian Smith, RAILS
After our lightning talks, we broke into groups to discuss your ideas, projects, challenges, or works-in-progress.
Happy hour plans are being developed and will be announced by email to the Library UX Chicago Google Group and in person at the event.
