  • UX-A Program

    UX-A Mentor LunchImproving systems through user experience (UX) testing and assessing the value of library and information services are essential for new roles for information professionals. With support from the IMLS Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian grant program, the Experience Assessment (UX-A) project will face this challenge of educating our future information professionals in all aspects of performance and measurement in both libraries and information environments. Led by Chancellor's Professor Carol Tenopir, SIS Professor Dania Bilal, SIS Associate Professor Rachel Fleming-May, and UT Libraries Assessment Librarian Regina Mays, UX-A will combine coursework, training, and hands-on experience to equip a diverse cohort of twelve SIS master’s students with competences in assessment and user experience testing.
