How to Use This Toolbox
If you're anything like we were when we started practicing User Experience (UX) Design, you're not an expert and you have budget, time or other constraints to consider. We put together this toolbox to show librarians who are new to UX that these methods and tools are accessible to beginners. Use the rating system (see below) to determine if a tool will work for you.

User Experience Tools for Beginners
Who Are We?
We are two librarians at a small graduate health sciences school who have gradually integrated UX design and research into our services. After two years of using various UX tools and methods, we wanted to package our experience in a way that could help other librarians get started with UX design.
