UX Design for Libraries is really well written, really quick and interesting to read, ... really "usable." I'd highly recommend it for librarians approaching a redesign or usability testing for the first time. Published just a few months ago from the time of this review, the rapid development of the web means it's already feeling a little dated. And, I guess, I'll add that I only gave it three stars because for readers who have been doing a little UX already and for designers that are versed in ...more

User Experience (UX) Design for Libraries by Aaron Schmidt is a slim volume that is part of a series of books (18) called "The Tech Set"
This book is full of a lot of valuable information concerning User Design for Libraries (Website Design, Signage, Furniture placement, Library Design to name a few examples.) and should be a primer purchased by any staff who oversee the operations of a Library and it's many intricacies.

User experience (UX) looks at the important factors of Library use, such as u

The majority of the book covers the basics of UX design tools, which if the reader is well versed in UX, will not provide too much information that the reader does not already know. It lends a library twist to it that could be helpful, but again, mostly for someone not as well versed in the tools already. I enjoyed the first and last chapters the most, looking at overarching UX issues with libraries (primarily the catalog). A recommended read for library staff wanting to better understand what U ...more

This book was a great quick read about User Experience in libraries. It was very thorough and brought together the disparate understanding I already had about UX. The organization of the material was logical and the supporting links and books mentioned seem helpful as well. I would strongly recommend this book for anyone who is even loosely involved with user experience/usability at their library.

This is a quick read but full of good ideas. Lots to share and varying levels of complexity in practical tools to try.
