UX in Libraries: on your marks, get set….

logo_colour…go! Well nearly go. On Wednesday 01 October registration will officially open for the UX (User eXperience) in Libraries conference which will take place over three days at St Catharine’s College Cambridge between 17 and 19 March 2015. Put together by a team of eight good women and men and true, UXLib as we affectionately call it, promises to be a highly practical and challenging conference with keynote speakers including library ethnographer extraordinaire Donna Lanclos,  usability wizard Matthew Reidsma, and service design guru Paul-Jervis Heath. However, the keynotes are only a part of the story. In addition you will be working in teams carrying out fieldwork across Cambridge University, coming together to develop needs into ideas and, ultimately, solutions as you pitch off your ideas against your fellow delegates for some VERY worthwhile prizes. This conference will be a true learning and developmental experience and we want YOU to be a part of it.

The Great UX in Libraries Riot of 2014

We only have 100 delegate places due to the teamwork and pitch-off components so competition for places may be a little fierce. We hope that none of you gets hurt in the rush as you seek to secure the library equivalent of this year’s Cabbage Patch Doll.

There is heaps more luvverly info over on the gorgeous UXLib website so there’s no point in repeating it all here – go see it now! However, the most important thing for you to do today (if you have not done so already – for shame!) is to sign-up for the mailing list as we are giving priority booking to those people who have expressed their interest in this way (scroll to the foot of the UXLib website to sign up).

I leave you with your appetite truly whetted as you stand poised ready to fight for your place. See you in Cambridge (hopefully!).
