About the speaker
The term “user experience,” while familiar in the context of computer usability, is fairly new in the library environment. The first user experience or “UX” librarian job descriptions started appearing only within the last few years. Debra's own title changed in December 2009. I was one of three science librarians when she was promoted to the new position of UX librarian. Since then, she has slowly but surely nurtured and built the library's UX practice.
Who should attend?
Lone wolves, newbies, and innies in user experience and usability will all learn from Debra's successes and mistakes.
