Limited Capacity filling up

This session will present an overview of how the University of Manitoba Libraries adapted the concept of a "Kindness Audit" to identify and document space, usability, and signage concerns and triumphs across all 20 system locations. The session will include background on the University of Manitoba Libraries project, instructions on developing standards for user experience to match your own users and priorities, and a summary of our findings and common issues noted across our locations. The session will be an hour in length, with an interactive portion of approximately fifteen minutes prior to our general findings in which participants will view photos of library areas and identify potential wayfinding, signage, and usability concerns. There will also be time for questions at the end. Session emphasis will be on practical, low-cost assessment, and will emphasize the right of users to be comfortable and self-navigate in library spaces.

I'm the webnerd of the MLA. I like chewing on UX and design and assessment stuff. Also I like muppets and anime and videogames, if you're sick of the shop talk.
