I will collaborate with several fine fellow librarians from Cornell and Columbia University libraries doing a workshop titled “Influencing and improving products: structured interface reviews” at the upcoming Electronic Resources & Libraries conference, March 16-19, 2014 at AT&T Conference Center, Austin, Texas. The workshop will be held on March 19th, 1-5pm CST.
This workshop will analyse library electronic resource platform from usability and accessibility perspectives. Most of our assessment tend to be from either usability or accessibility perspective. Rarely we perform both type of assessments together when evaluating a library electronic resource. Hopefully this workshop would provide some basic understanding on how to conduct the assessments, document the findings, and communicate them with the vendor/provider.
