Essentials of Usability Design for Library Research Guides


Abstract: Web design, in the form of creating online research guides, has become a big part of many librarians’ jobs, but we’re rarely taught how to do it well. Most of us learn the nuts and bolts of how to make guides, without learning the principles of how to make them usable -- the simple techniques of visual and textual design  that can help us create guides that users will understand more easily, and stick around to use.  Learn about easy to use principles of usability that can immediately improve your research guides.

Presenter: Jason Puckett is Librarian for Communication and Virtual Services and Assistant Professor at Georgia State University Library in Atlanta, Georgia. He was named a Library Journal Mover & Shaker in 2010, in part for his work with technology in libraries. Puckett has a BA in English from Georgia State University and an MLIS from Florida State University, and is the author of the ACRL Publication Modern Pathfinders: Creating Better Research Guides.
