Knowing Your Audience: User Centered Design Principles Applied to Library Websites
An ACRL MD Invited Session
Friday, May 9
Libraries serve a multitude of audiences, and their websites do too. This program will focus on the processes of identifying your target audiences and using their goals and pain-points to direct the website design and development process. Participants will learn about the important stages of a website design/re-design process and when user feedback can best inform the process. Current best practices will be featured throughout, with an emphasis on designing for engagement.
This program is worth 1 contact hour of continuing education.
