Join our poster presentation about what happened when students and faculty from Longwood’s Design Lab, a student-run graphic design agency mentored by faculty, collaborated with librarians and a major corporation. During the 2012-13 academic year, the Design Lab partnered with EBSCO Corporation, a global supplier of K-12 and higher education library research databases, to evaluate and redesign their interfaces.

Longwood’s graphic design students experienced the extensive process of conducting user experience research, including usability testing, wireframe/prototype design and presenting recommendations. They worked with librarians to utilize systematic observation techniques and gather data on how K-12 and university students interact with research database interfaces. The Design Lab students then created clickable prototypes based on their observations and EBSCO’s goals. EBSCO’s Information Architect visited campus for two days to meet with the Design Lab students and learn more about their findings and recommendations. If you're interested in collaborating with faculty and students to improve your library services and products, join this poster session to learn about the collaborative process that provided pedagogical content for Longwood's students and collaboration with librarians and EBSCO. And.. learn about our user experience findings!
