Sure, it may SEEM a little bit early to plan which sessions you’ll attend at the 2014 ALAO Conference, but we want to make sure you don’t miss out on the DLIG sponsored session. We are incredibly excited to have Theresa DeSimio & Ximena Chrisagis presenting “Rethinking our LibGuides to Engage Our Students: Easy DIY LibGuide Usability Testing and Redesign That Works” at 11:00 in the Leopardroom. The presenters will describe how they evaluated the usability of their LibGuides, implemented a redesign using a template, and assessed the project’s outcomes – while using existing equipment and staff.
