Presentation 1:
Snapshot - Prioritizing Users with Print Disabilities @ the HathiTrust Digital Library
Mass digitization of library collections has radically expanded the number of books available to users with print disabilities, who have historically found it difficult to get access. As part of its mission, HathiTrust has implemented and improved services for this user group, including enabling access to the entire corpus.
Presenter: Angelina Zaytsev

Presentation 2:
Snapshot - “So, what did you expect to happen when you clicked on that?” A report from the usability lab.
This presentation reports on results from usability testing undertaken to support Reed Digital Collections (RDC). Users tested the RDC interface as well as those of the Universal Viewer, Mirador, Google Books, HathiTrust, and others. Emphasis will be on user responses to the display, navigation, and search of book-like objects.
Presenter: Laura Buchholz

Presentation 3:
Snapshot - Improving User Experience in the Carolina Digital Repository
The Carolina Digital Repository (CDR) is the institutional repository for UNC-Chapel Hill. This talk will address the CDR development team's formal investigation into user experience in the CDR, the lessons learned from the investigation, and how the CDR has translated these lessons into actionable items for current and future development.
Presenter: Hannah Wang

Presentation 4:
Object-Oriented UX and Metadata for Digital Collections
This presentation will provide a walkthrough for developing digital collections and metadata with tools and techniques from the user experience design and content strategy fields. Investigating audiences, objects, and schemas leads to a more robust design strategy that improves access to various digital projects and contexts for users.
Presenters: Erik Radio, Cate Kompare
