Embedding UX research and design

A recent SCONUL report described UX design as one of the most important emerging technical skills for academic library staff. While UX research techniques are increasingly familiar and accepted, most university libraries are still some way off embedding an actual UX design process. UX design is all about making the most of UX research, transforming user data into new services and products through a process of prototyping and iteration. The result of following a fuller UX design process, as opposed to just trying out some UX research techniques, is a range of truly user-centred services that place the needs and behaviours of today’s students, researchers and academics far higher up the agenda.
