Redesign on a Dime: Building a Clean, User-friendly Library Web Site Using Home-grown and Free Tools

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Loras College librarians transformed their library’s website into one that responded to users’ needs while meeting the library's teaching objectives and the College’s branding requirements - all with no budget, limited staff, and very little technical assistance.  After learning about how this ACRL College Library Web Site of the Month was created using quick-and-dirty usability testing, open source code, and vendor-provided and home-grown widgets, attendees will have the opportunity to explore free tools discussed in the presentation at hands-on stations, including WireframePro, Jing, and card sorts. Participants will gain a knowledge of free tools that can be applied to their own library’s website.

Within the library world, I am passionate about instructional design, usability, and purposeful assessment. My attention is also drawn to bicycles, community art projects, pianos, and a certain red squeeze box.
