The ACRL/NY User Experience Discussion Group is one of the many discussion groups of the Association of College and Research Libraries Greater New York Chapter (ACRL/NY). The Discussion Group Chair is appointed by the ACRL/NY Executive Board.
Mission Statement: Participation in the User Experience Discussion Group is a benefit of membership in the Association of College and Research Libraries Greater New York Chapter (ACRL/NY).
The ACRL/NY User Experience Discussion Group meets once a semester on Friday, usually in a central location in Manhattan. The group seeks to initiate discussion among professional academic librarians about user experience (UX) issues, techniques and approaches in academic libraries. Topics may include any user experience research techniques, such as interviews, web site usability testing, and different observational methods, including listening techniques, etc. The group focuses on both physical UX and web site UX and advocates for libraries to employ user experience techniques in their libraries.
Membership: A “Member” is defined as a person who has registered and paid dues to ACRL/NY; this membership is separate from national ACRL membership. ACRL/NY membership is required for participation in UXDG meetings.
