D05: Trends in Library Website Design
This presentation discusses design trends in academic library websites. The data presented is based on the study of 37 academic library websites and how they changed since 2012. This study is a follow-up to a study performed in 2015, and will include data from 2018. Elements considered include navigation design, search box design, web-scale discovery usage, content management system use and responsive design.

D07: On Selling-In Innovation
In the early stages of innovation, there is often very little evidence to prove the potential success of an emerging product or service. Instead, we often rely on the loudest voice in the room – a shrewd political navigator – to build or force the internal momentum needed to get an idea to market.

“Selling-in” innovation is about creating and delivering persuasive arguments. It is about telling stories that win the hearts and minds of internal stakeholders and building artifacts that allow them to see, and then advocate for, the vision on your behalf.In this workshop, we will learn and practice an approach to building persuasive arguments and artifacts that can applied to any product or service innovation.

Participants will see examples of how this has been done in successful startups and Fortune 500 companies. They will be given the components needed to build the case for their new idea, and will practice selling their vision to other groups of stakeholders.

D11: User Experience Activities in Small Academic Libraries
Although UX testing and design is very popular in academic libraries, the prevalence of these practices in small academic libraries is unknown. The MGH Institute of Health Professions librarians distributed a survey asking small academic libraries about recent and future UX activities and barriers they encountered. During this session, we will explore the results of this survey and generate discussion about the special needs of small libraries when it comes to UX testing and design.

D17-02: Is your library website beautiful?
The visual appearance of a website impacts user experience, from a user's perception of the website’s usability to a user's willingness to trust the website. Libraries must expand from examining the usability and feel of their websites to examining the visual appeal. This talk presents a UX study that examines the visual appeal of academic library websites. It provides examples of how libraries can improve their UX by analyzing the beauty of their websites.

D24: Tackling wicked problems: A social policy planning framework for addressing library user experience
This presentation applies the social policy planning framework of wicked problems to user experience problems in libraries. Presenters review the concept of wicked problems and relate how some UX problems meet the criteria for wicked problems by using case studies. The presentation will include suggestions for how to use this framework to evaluate UX problems as either wicked or tame problems and how to determine optimal approaches to resolution.
