User Experience (UX)

Amanda Etches-Johnson, who was asked to speak about User experience at the LITA Top Tech Trends at ALA Midwinter, discusses new trends in User Experience on her blog, Blogwithoutalibrary. Generally what she's interested in is the user experience of library websites, and particularly in the emotional experience, or sort of holistic experience, library users have when using our websites. What seems to be happening more and more is that users are coming to websites from mobile devices, and many websites now have special mobile versions for browsing with mobile devices. Since our catalogs are viewed as part of the library website, this is something for us to consider. How would our catalogs best work on a mobile display?
