Abstract

In early 2011 SLA offi cially launched the User Experience (UX) Caucus1 with a focus on how users experience their libraries. (Join the SLA discussion list at SLA-KUX@sla.lyris.net). UX Librarian at Rice University, Debra Kolah, will convene the first meeting of the caucus at SLA 2011 in Philadelphia with the goal to “permanently embed the user experience within the culture of librarianship. To accomplish this goal, the caucus will provide structure, advice and support for usability studies. The caucus will ultimately give its members clear strategies to search for, identify, and address areas in their own organizations where usability can be improved.”
